Review #992 | Scotch Review #331 – The Glenlivet 11yr Signatory Vintage 2007 The Whiskey Barrel Selection

The Schtick: This is a single cask of spirit distilled at The Glenlivet that was matured for its entirety in a first fill sherry butt and bottled by the prolific independent bottler, Signatory Vintage. This specific cask was selected by The Whiskey Barrel.


Distiller: The Glenlivet

Bottler: Signatory Vintage

ABV: 66.8% ABV

Age: 11 Years

Cask: #900134


Nose: Sweet honey, tangerines. Ethanol, confectioners sugar. Leather, toffee, pepper.

Taste: Thick, rich, loaded with honey, syrupy prunes. A good deal of heat, but not punishing. Lots of tobacco, musty earthy basement notes, pipe tobacco, figs. Currants, blackberry. Some sulphur.

Finish: Long, more heat here but still in check. Pipe tobacco, pepper, honey, figs and date fruits. That tangerine note is back, but there’s some cocoa and cardamom.

Overall: Overall, big, brash, and flavorful. Not a sulphur bomb like some other releases have been, and loaded with a flavor I really am enjoying.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
