    November 4, 2016 - Non Chill Filtered; natural cask strength. Approx. $90/750 ml at Papa Joe's in Richmond, IN; 16 years old; 60.2 pabv; bottled 12/14; lot 1214E. One part of mineral water to 2 parts of whisky yields circa 40 percent, or about 80 proof. Note that there is a less expensive version of this without an age statement; probably multi-barrel blends but not adjusted to standard strength.

    Lightish yellow-gold Prominent sweet sherry nose, delicate and harmonious; wet limestone. Roasted pecan. Pine resin and sweet orange peel; touch of subtle funk and even cotton candy.

    Sweet entry but then Bitter orange and clove or licorice midpalate; still good burn even at this dilution. Finish is sweet with a touch of vanillin oak; considerable length, along with a gentle herbosity. Less all-out power than a previous bottle, but gentle finesse shows through better. 93/100

    January 13, 2012 - Just finished this bottle and will definitely go find another. My wife loves it and I find it delivers wonderful aromas and tastes in a proper glass in front of a warm fire place. The taste is a little sweet and a little smoky. The nose reminds me of honeysuckle.

    October 2, 2011 - the aromas are relatively soft at first, there's a little heat when the whisky is agitated. it's quite fruity and broad. the palate is quite aggressive, initially the alcohol overpowers the flavours. surprising as it is supposedly only 40% ABV. but then it calms down and a good deal of complexity can be found. downthe length is amazing.
    i'm not in love with this whisky but it is certainly interesting.

    January 29, 2010 - Supposedly non-chill filtered restores tastes in exchange for not clouding when iced. I'd never put ice in single malt scotch but this is much better than the 12-yr standard

    November 30, 2009 - My favorite Glenlivet, very smooth. Better on the rocks after ice melts a little bit.
