Glenlivet Cipher

Glenlivet Cipher The Glenlivet Cipher is a really interesting dram, it's a no age statement mystery dram from Glenlivet, in a similar way to Glenlivet Alpha.

Theres a fair bit of that tropical fruit juice note that i expect with Glenlivet, ex bourbon casks, but it just doesn't really go anywhere and despite owning an open bottle of this i'm dissappointed as it's not as good as the Alpha and to be fair i'd rahter have a Glenlivet 12 instead.

Sold out everywhere i can see, but not worth the value put on it anyway.

I have a bottle of this and also received an official sample from Glenlivet.


A little prickly spice on the nose first with buttered brown bread toast, a splash of vanilla pods, with waxy vanilla notes, a hint of spicy sweetness and definite cask char, some BBQ grilled bitter pineapple slices too

Sweet, juicy, flat cola and molasses rum notes, spicy brown bread and more of those grilled pineapple slices,

Fruity, fresh vanilla, tangy spices
