The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV

The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV


Another representative of the mysterious series […]

Not so long ago a courier knocked at my door handing a mysterious silver suitcase. I completely did not know what was going on, it was only after breaking into the interior that the Glenlivet Code and the equally mysterious black tasting glass were hidden. [caption id=attachment_7784 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] This is another, after Alpha and Cipher edition, on the occasion of which The Glenlivet encourages to independently name the smells and flavors, using their nomenclature, encourage to decode a single malt. This can also be done using the application found on the manufacturers website. Interesting fun for all those who want to test themselves in the whisky tasting. [caption id=attachment_7786 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] Traditionally, with these releases, we only know the level of alcohol, which is 48% ABV and thats it. The age, the barrels, and of course the aroma and taste sensations remain a mystery waiting to be discovered. [caption id=attachment_7788 align=alignnone width=1920] The Glenlivet Code, 48% ABV[/caption] So, lets discover. N: still in the bottle the smell reminds me of hydrated raisins, fresh bread, slightly yeasty, malty, then red fruit, apples, peach, vanilla; after pouring into a glass I first felt light alcohol vapors and ginger, the tones I felt straight from the bottle went somewhere in the background, now I have more toffee and caramel, but I also get ripe apples, candied orange, peach and dried apricot, immediately after that it gets very smooth, even creamy, later I discovered a cappuccino, nice; S: the taste seems more severe, I have ginger, grapefruit, orange skin and pineapple, there are clear traces of wood, also cinnamon, cardamom, I still have an apple and a peach, with time increasing dryness with a company of ginger; F: even long with ginger and remnants of wood, dry. Score: 80. The Glenlivet...

    Merry Christmas

    Previous Ardmore on the blog was official Traditional Cask NAS, 46% ABV, that I liked, by its way I also wrote a few words about this distillery. Before that I had here Ardmore 1992/2013 bottled for The Auld Alliance Singapore, just 218 bottles, at 51,3% ABV. Today I present you Ardmore from independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. It was distilled in 1991 and bottled 2007, we have 16 years of maturation. The power is relatively low - 43% ABV. [caption id=attachment_7620...
