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.
Member Reviews and Ratings of The Glenlivet 12 Year Old
Makes a great intro to scotch
Perfect balance and smooth start to finish.
easy to sip, very enjoyable for the price
Good starter Scotch. First Scotch I ever bought. Slightly smokey, with a bit of peat but does not have the Iodine smell or taste the some others have.
Hey, it's a scotch! Glenlivet 12 year is a standard but for a good reason. A fruity scotch (no peat here) that tastes more alcoholic than it is. Actually, that's the main thing detracting from this younger variety. The overwhelming alcohol flavor overpowers much of what makes Glenlivet delicious and you'll be left wondering what was there that left such a great aftertaste.
Glenlivet was my 4th Highland Scotch I tried, and it quickly became one of my staples. A fantastic scotch, that's smooth and sippable.
I enjoy this scotch.
I was surprised how much I liked this scotch. I’m normally a very peaty and smoky flavor guy. Almost anything from Islay. This is none of those, but tastes great. I will revisit this one again...
Really smooth, great for sipping.
Not bad. Drinkable and simple
I like the aroma (oak, hint of fruit) of the whisky, the flavor profile, and the bead effect. The whisky is a great spirit to introduce new whisky drinkers too, especially whisky's from Speyside. With that being said, there are better whiskies out on the market. But you can never go wrong having this in your stable.
I am still new to scotch, but I do like this one, it is not heavy and woodsy or oaky like a lot of less aged scotch, and it is reasonably priced.
Very smooth makes me think of the CEO who keeps this bottle in his desk
A nice basic scotch. Nothing that sparks a wow factor but very drinkable. I will always be content with a glass.
I dig this scotch. Simple. But done excellently.
Not quite as smooth as expected but 2/3rds of it has disappeared down my gullet already so it must be doing something right!
That was good but not as good as the 20 years old Scotch I drank in Germany almost 30 years ago.
This is my go to scotch when I am on the road. Great drink that is available almost anywhere
It is a good scotch.
easy to drink, light, smooth and bitter
Very good everyday single malt
This is my Step-mom's families go to and there is always plenty at my Dad's house. It is a good standard scotch that is drinkable, but I prefer Oban.
Easy drinking as far as whisky goes. Leaves a little 'fire' after each sip.
Easy to drink. Good to keep on hand,
Great as go-to drink
Very enjoyable but I would spend the extra for the 15 YO
Nice to Have on hand
I finally found a scotch that fits the hype.
just like a whiskey has to be, smooth, light and full of charakter.
This is a staple at my bar. Can't go wrong.
Nice and light
For the price, I love this one. I love the fruit notes that come through.
Great - smooth, warm, refreshing
Good all around single malt. Smooth.
Smell little mint. Taste honey with smoky fruits.
Smooth at first with slow, small warm. Vanilla, fruity nose.
Clean with a drop of water and sweet
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
A bit harsher than I cared for. The apple notes came very late for me and most flavors were overpowered by almost metallic burn.
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...
Though sweet and fruity like most Speys, a bit harsh down the neck. Popular selling dram you can find just about anywhere, nothing special.
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.
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.
Intense apple that dominates. Extremely smooth.
Fairly smooth, fruits, short finish.
very soft and tasty.
Beautifully crafted light single malt whisky. I have been drinking this expression for 35 years. Always a delicious treat.
One of my favorite Scotch whiskies.
Very smooth, one of my favorites
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
Smells fruity, tastes smooth but can't taste the fruit.
