Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

The delicate and complex character of Glenlivet 12 Year Old derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery and the mineral rich water from Josie's Well ensures the best possible results during mashing and fermenting to form the flavours that define this expression.

Glenlivet 12YO is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American Oak which imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness, and European Oak.

Not a big fan. It feels like this whiskey is an acquired taste. Much like the Islays.

DanSteal's Explorers Club review: The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

I knew this one with the first taste! I always have a few bottles of this on hand for a "go to" Scotch when friends drop over.

Easy drinking and a great way to introduce someone to Scotch. I often give this as a gift.
