Default Scotch opinion

Hey guys. I bought my lawyer a bottle of Glenlivet 21 Archive today. Can I get some opinions on it?

My first advice is to upgrade your photobucket account, no pics.

2nd comment is that's a nice bottle. I like others better, but if he complains about it, he's either very picky or doesn't like Scotch. In either case reject his man card and take the bottle back

I like the Livet better than the Fittich. Very nice, middle of the taste spectrum, single malt. Nectar of the Gods....

Glenlivit is an excellent single malt. I personally have not tried the 21 archive, though.
I would expect it to be very good indeed.

Personally, I prefer the 18 year old over the 21 yer old Glenlivet. I find it more pleasing to my palate.

Not familiar with that particular variant of The Glenlivet but would be happy to render an opinion if you send me a bottle

Meh, I was not going to drink it unless he offered, I know the lesser of the Glenlevits are very nice so I figured this one would be at least as good.

Anything in particular about it? I have found that even though its a mellower finish sometimes the older scotches are too smoky for me, I think it might be something you have to grow into. I have been drinking blended whisky for so long I always expect the sweetness and sometime it takes two or even three glasses of scotch to really get used to it .. but I keep trying .
