Proof66 Notes

The Glenlivet XXV is a 25yr old single malt scotch and part of the sherry cask collection. It was designed as a prestige scotch and the "swan song" of their former master distiller, whose name appears on the box. The box itself is made of oak and meant for special presentation. It is aged in oak and then given a finish in Oloroso sherry casks and ends with a strong, smooth finish. It is very dark in color but very clear in presentation and recommended as a digestif or taken with dessert.

Anthony Dias Blue in his Blue Reviews for Tasting Panel Magazine. (August, 2014) gave the Glenlivet XXV a very unusual and effusive review of 98pts saying it was "layered and astonishing."

The Glenlivet Distillery (note the use of the indefinite article "the" allowed by court decree in 1884) is the top-selling single malt scotch in the world. It is often considered the classic Speyside, producing unpeated (that is, non-smoky) scotch whisky. The name translates as "valley of the smooth flowing one." They are proud of their mineral rich water from "Josie's well" and their tall copper stills, producing lighter vapors for smoother, more buoyant whisky. The brand is owned by French-based Pernod-Ricard.
