Glenlivet 2007 Whisky Live Paris Private Cask Review [From Paris with Love]

Hi everyone,

Remember the other day when Whisky Exchange released a super high strength Glenlivet from Signatory?
Well, not be outdone, Whisky Live Paris (so, really La Maison du Whisky) have done one as well. Except they were outdone, because TWE's was over 67% and this was a measly 66.6.
Glenlivet 2007 Whisky Live Paris Private Cask 66.6%
Colour: Amber
Body: Full
Nose: Gets in your nose with the alcohol hit but orange and cherry, Sherry and malt. With water it's better and more floral.
Taste: Pinched, really very tight. Orange, cherry, Sherry and malt. Quite dry. With water it's like a boozy fruit salad.
Finish: Long length. Alcoholic and orange-y.
Yeah, a very alcoholic, Sherried Glenlivet. Not much else to say, it's good but not really balanced.

Thanks for reading!
