One of the most popular single malts in the World.

In 1824 George Smith made a daring move and got a license to legally produce single malt Whisky. Needless to say, the neighbouring smugglers weren’t all too happy about it, so for protection he had to carry not one, but two guns at all times. Imagine that.

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old is one of the most popular (and best-selling) single malts in the World. It was matured in a mixture of casks made from American and European oak. Using the mineral rich water from Josie’s Well ensures the best possible result during mashing and fermenting to form flavours defining this Highland Scotch.

Good introduction. Very simple not much there.

Very smooth, with just a drop of ice water, to compliment the after tones....

Simply the best for the price
Don
Don,
A bit harsher than I cared for. The apple notes came very late for me and most flavors were overpowered by almost metallic burn.
Will
Will,
You may find it anywhere they sell Scotch, but it is a fine go to and I am never at home without it. Fruity, nice burn, vanilla and floral.

Fruity, floral and vanilla...
Chris
Chris,
Though sweet and fruity like most Speys, a bit harsh down the neck. Popular selling dram you can find just about anywhere, nothing special.
Pat
Pat,
It is a good everyday scotch. Definitely one of the bottles I always keep in my bar.

Tried and true favorite, budget-friendly with near-perfect balance of spice, subtle burn, and a hint of sweet in nose, palette, and finish, consistently satisfying, and will always recommend. Their long-standing history of crafting single malt scotch alone should be a testament to the consistently delightful results in anything labeled Glenlivet. For the price, I challenge you to find a more complex and lasting finish than this.

Не моя тема. Водянистый. Конечно фрукты и все такое. Но можно больше не брать.
Cheyne
Cheyne,
A widely available whisky for a reason. It's flavorful but not overpowering. It's a nice simple sipping dram, behaving much more like a bourbon than a scotch in terms of drinkability. Not peaty but a hint of smoke is pervasive. Lovely stuff.

Nothing fancy here, typically found in most bars.

Peter
Peter,
Lemon peal, semi sweet nose. Soft palate; pineapple like flavors. Finish a little rough. Some hot alcohol burn. A very good 12 year speyside, but this region must not be my cup of tea.

it's sweetish and smooth after burn in the throat is a treat
