The Glenlivet Master Distiller’s Reserve

Location: Speyside
ABV: 40%
Purchased at the Duty Free (1 Litre bottle)

I started liking scotch when I bought my first bottle of Glenlivet. After many years, I bought their 18 year old version. Glenlivet seems like a great entry to scotches. Then comes this “Master Distiller’s Reserve”, that someone brought for our sky vacation. Wow, this is quite nice. A beautiful nose of maple syrup over the smooth grain. Does burn as it goes down, but a nice warmth overall. The grain is present in the taste with little smoke. Quite a nice one and hope to find a bottle for myself.
