Nosing: Beautiful Notes of Sherry and Honey, Definitely Dried Fruits (Maybe Plums or Possibly Raisins), Apples, Pears

Taste: Smooth with Heavy Floral Notes, Sherry, Sweet, Definitely some Oak (As to be expected from an Oak Cask), Hints of Cinnamon and subtle hints of Nuts

Finish: Sweet Honey Apple, A light touch of peat maybe some smoke, with a nice alcohol and spice finish

Comment: The Glenlivet 15 YO French Oak Reserve definitely compliments a nice Habano or even a Maduro Cigar. Personally I find that whiskeys from The Glenlivet Distillery stand on their own without a cigar, however I find that I find the subtle aromas and flavors much easier when pairing them with a nice cigar (But then again that is just ME)
