The Glenlivet Archive 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Review

The Glenlivet products are a personal favorite of ours. As most of our favorites come from the Speyside, this 21 year archive is a fantastic break from the norm. For those of you who like other Speyside exports like Glenfiddich, Glenmorangie, and the Macallen, you will find this 21 year single malt to be a delicious treat.  The presentation and packaging is very nice as the bottle sits nestled in a wooden and fabric holster.

Retailing between $120 and $150 depending on where you purchase, this is a very smooth and flavorful scotch we recommend you at least try once.  At this time, The Glenlivet Archive 21 is our favorite over 20 year scotch we have had the pleasure of trying.  Granted that list is very short, but thats not the point!
