Glenlivet Quercus 17 year old

This is a sample I had from the Whisky Shop rather than a full bottle.  Its delightful, I’m not sure about the cost/value equation but I have to say I would consider it if I didn’t have so many other whiskies to try with that money first.

Glenlivet Quercus 17 year old Whisky Shop exclusive, 52.1% A⊕


Nose – Fresh fruit, apples and pears.  Citrus fruit, oranges and limes.  Refreshing and inviting coconut and orange, sandalwood, cider.

Body – Fizzing, creamy body with hard wood.  Smooth and mouth coating.  Effortlessly balanced creamy oak and vanilla.  Fine malt palate.  Very well presented and refreshing.

Finish – Sechuan peppercorns.  Long, long finish with loads of toasty oak and spice.  Beautiful, supple, well balanced.  Some well integrated bitterness.
