Member Reviews and Ratings of The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve
Smoother than the 12 year. But more complex flavor. Definitely more spice (probably from the French Oak) that the 12 year. A nice drink for very reasonable money.
Probably my favorite go-to malt. Smooth. The nose is rich and oaked not smoky. Well balanced. The palate is full and rich with thick oak. The finish is long and dry with a peppery note.
Much better than the 12 year.
Nice bite, smooth finish! A great sipper
Don’t usually go with this brand. But now I am seeing their genius. Get people started on one of the highest selling “easy” scotches, then introduce them into the real scotch. This is wonderful!
Rich and sweet.
very smooth and somewhat sweet. Very good for the price
Fantastic. On third dram and I am impressed. I may have found my “every day” whisky!
Well worth the money. Underpriced in my opinion. I normally go for other not so mainstream brands but this one caught my eye, and I’m glad it did. Try it!
One of my favorites!
Very smooth. I got a deal on it for $55 and it was worth every penny.
Oakier than the 18 and not quite as good but still well worth the money.
Very impressed with this one, almost as good as 18 yr old Glenlivet but much less expensive. I plan to re-stock for my home bar.
One of my favourite
This Whiskey is excellent, altho maybe a little over-priced. My only complaint is it's really mild, enjoyable but not a lot of complexity for $60+ scotch (I paid $90 for it locally, yikes). I can really smell the green apple which is nice, and a little bit of spice. I'll try this one again periodically, and it deserves a high rating, but i prefer whiskies that are a little more challenging at this price.
Has a sweet finish
A beginners scotch
Everyone will like
I keep coming back to this favorite. Very smooth, great oak finish. Like a scotch is supposed to taste. Drink it neat, and at room temperature.
Classic, smooth with a twist of spice
I really enjoyed this one, very smooth and buttery with caramel notes on the front with a nice sharp smoky finish. I recommend this for anyone who likes a good scotch, drink it neat for a nice flavor composition
Smooth, spicy and deliciously oaky
Surprisingly smooth from the very first sip.
Love this. SOO smooth and so good.
On the nose- Honey, dark chocolate, oak, Apple and raisin.
Palate- Sweet-and-sour with a touch of spice, Lemon peel, honeycomb, dates, Yellow raisins, apricots, and cashews
Conclusion- Very thin and short finish with some astringency.

Easy everyday drink.
Excellent single malt. Almost TOO good for a highball, this is a smooth sipping Scotch that pays it's name full dues. Sweet and smoky, rich mouth feel and a blast of peaty rye in the finish. Smooth as can be asked for, and complex enough to entertain a tasting snob, it's an excellent mid-shelf drink that will offer something for everyone.
Rich and oaky. Fudge. Spices. Cinnamon. Long finish
One of favorite Scotch, hands down. Back in 2012 when I was in the military, I got this as a drawer bottle for work from the BX... When one day a co-worker came in and was having a really bad day, I busted it out and we both had a little glass to help cut the tension of the day. All the ill feelings from the day melted away and all we could comment on was how good this Scotch was. Makes for great memories!
Great Scotch, a step below the 18, but solid nonetheless
Favorite Single malt
Very smooth, odd finishing flavor. Lacks initial flavor.
Nice to have a sweet scotch that doesn’t rely on sherry.
Not horrible, the finish left a bad taste. Will not purchase again.
Probably the best value for a scotch I got in 2018. The French Oak is apparent without being overly bitter, and it’s sweetness is tempered by the oak and secondary flavors of rich fruit.
Not a fan of the French Oak influence
Wonderful scotch, and affordable. Best Whisky out there for under $60/bottle
Wonderful dram. Tastes like a 15 yr should.
P drei, 👌🏼
So far this is my favorite bang for your buck whisky. Smooth and tasty. Sipping with a nice cigar and you forget all about the long day at work. I enjoy this better than the any other whisky within $50 of the price.
Good one. Balanced between sweet and dry. Smooth without being oily or heavy. Doesn't beat your face in with a thousand flavors. Tastes like Scotch should....not a candy basket with bog water, and a bouquet if flowers. Just Whisky.
Loved it. Smooth and very drinkable.
Excellent flavor. Smooth finish. One of my favorites! Cheers
I don’t know how someone can think this was a not good scotch? This is by far one of my best scotches to date! It is so wonderful to the nose and it tastes so wonderful and has such a smooth aftertaste! I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves single malt scotch!!!
Very smooth and a rather sweet taste. It tasted delicious and was the first scotch after my 7 month deployment. It went was so very easy to drink.
Quite harsh on the taste. Not smooth to drink.
My usual "go to" when I can't get my hands on the 18. Very easy to sip on ice.
Lots of smoke and well balanced
This is, hands down, my go-to scotch. Just the right amount of bite and bold flavor, but balanced beautifully with smooth sweetness. Two fingers of this, neat, on a cold autumn Sunday evening: bliss.
Tastes simple, clean. You could drink this all night. Like I like my ladies.
First Scotch I was introduced to and now one of my favorites but, I’m sorry, I buy it on base for $29.95 a bottle
My personal favorite.
Distinct floral notes with cinnamon, pepper, citrus, and mango with a long creamy finish.
you always remember the first time. while nothing is perfect this was the smooth scotch that taught me the spirit isn't always a harsh drink. the name is accurate " the smooth flowing one" will always have this one on hand.
Hard to imagine a much better drink at the price being asked
Honestly had higher expectations
Delicous, one of my favourites.. easy to drink, great aftertaste
Perfectly balanced and smooth
Love this. Smokey with some oak. Bravo.
A very interesting combination of American oak and European oak casks. Spicy dram with vanilla and wood spices...
I got vanilla and oak on the nose. Cinnamon ice cream with caramel sauceon the palate. A little sherry at the end. It had a long and creamy finish. I really enjoyed this.
One of my fav:)
Buttery at the start of the bottle. Creamy spiciness to finish.
Smokey and smooth.
Awesome - beautiful flavour
Very nice. Especially the aftertaste. Perfect in combination with some dark chocolate.
Always hated scotch till I tried this.
Thank you very much indeed for this pleasant moment of enjoyment.
Decent whisky it's Carmel colored and chill filtered. I'd order it at a bar if it's all they had. Much better whisky out there.
