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.

This dram placed second on my list from the Glenlivet Guardians Chapter Selection and i have to be honest here and say it's not one i would go out and buy.

My least favourite of the Glenlivet Guardians Chapter Selection, it's not so bad that i would through it out rather than drink it but it#s not one i'd accept a second glass of.

Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso (Travel Retail)

The Glenlivet Nadurra has always been, and will remain, one of my favourite drams, the tropical fruits and lovely vanilla notes from the ex-bourbon cask works for my palate.

Not too long ago I reviewed the Travel Retail version of this dram, which is bottled at 48% ABV, I'm really excited to try this higher ABV version which I'm hoping comes across like the Aberlour a'Bunadh.
