    Recipe: No recipe but saw Bulliett Bourbon being poured

    Comments: Was told it was best Manhattan in Buenos Aires but lacked punch (maybe to little bitters?) for me. A little too washed out on the rocks.

    The Glenlivet Master Distiller's Reserve

    The nose is classic fruity Glenlivet stuff, tinned fruit salad and cream and chargrilled peaches. The taste is very sweet, the signature Glenlivet pineapple baked in to a sponge cake with burnt sugar and caramel.   The finish has some sweet black tea and oak notes. Reminded me of Texas summer with sweet tea and summer fruit. With a little water it became a bit more sugary and the tannins in finish were stronger. This is bottled at 40% ABV so probably doesn’t need water and I certainly preferred this neat. Overall this is a very approachable and well balanced. While some will always rail against the expansion of “no age statement” or NAS expressions as long as they are of this quality and represent their distillery style as well as this does then I have no major issues with NAS.
