From Glenlivet: "Our 21 Year Old Archive has over two decades of distilling expertise in every bottle. A variety of casks complete the flavor, with a noticeable sherry influence. Each cask is nosed and approved by Master Distiller Alan Winchester, and every batch is unique with subtle differences from those that came before and those still to follow."
"Opening bouquet offers sedate fragrances of dried flowers and malted barley; aeration stimulates marginally bigger aromas of dried yellow fruit (baked banana), toasty oak barrel and still-vigorous spirit. Palate entry is succulent, honeyed and luscious; midpalate tastes of dates, figs, S'mores, cocoa butter, nougat and dark fudge. Finishes oily, buttery, honey-sweet and focused."
