Glenlivet 33 (Signatory Vintage TWE Selection Cask 9464) Review

This is a 33 year Glenlivet that was matured in a refill sherry hogshead and bottled at 51% ABV. It was a TWE (The Whisky Exchange) barrel selection.

Nose: Loads of banana with thick, raisiny sherry – sherry masks the oak very well.

Palate: Big banana and sherry notes again with a grassy malt and aged oak.

Finish: Heats up with sherry combining with minerals and oak.

Rating: 91/100 – A nice sherry bomb – not overly complex, but very sweet and easy going.

Value for the money: This retailed for around $250, but I’d be a consumer at $150 or under for this bottle.
