Very smooth- Smokey without the peat. Hints of caramel and vanilla.
Already ordered another bottle!
Smells of strong apples and pear to me. Very inviting. Would be a great summer scotch to me. Smooth fresh taste.m with a crisp apple finish
This was a good bottle of Scotch, nothing insanely good about it but definitely a strong staple to have on the shelf.
Cold. Peat, dirt, smoke. Pipe smoke in particular.
It has a sweeter nose as compared to the 12. A tad more of a bite on the front end and a thinner mouth than the 12 also. Overall, I feel it’s sweeter than the 12 with caramel as the dominant flavor. It’s not as complex as the 12 so it gets a lower overall from me.
Mild, not over powering but not a lot of flavor in general.
This is nice to have around. No pronounced flavor profile. So so whiskey
Leicht zu trinken, angenehm auf der Zunge
A litter more burn compared to the 12 year.
i like the vanilla tones in this scotch
A bit warm in the nose and palate, some citrus, caramel, grain and vanilla aromas with short finish
Very nice simple, smooth, sweat, fruity, creamy dram. Easy to sip or mix
Nice taste starting to finish
It was just OK. Nothing special. Lots of alcohol no finess Do not reccomend.
Very smooth notes of Honey and slight oak! Delightfully spicy neat, opens with sweetness with a cube. Very enjoyable!
Its ok, a little on the light side. I do like the sweetness
Not much to say. It’s ok, but not as good as I expected. A sale whisky. Nothing further.
Cheaper off the shelf, one my new favorites. Couple of cubes and the 'good chair'
Harsh young and nothing like the old classic smooth 12 years. But for the money in sale it's not that bad and it still had got some of the fruit and nice flavours.
smooth and fruity
easy to drink
i love the long lasting taste of raisins at the end
New one for me. A little harsh at first but smoother as the ice melts.
Eh, it was ok. Nothing to write home about
Bear with me; I've been a whiskey fan for some time but my palette is quite uneducated. The thing I can connect to in relation to the above description is the syrupy sweetness. It is smooth to the end with very little bite. I was not all that impressed.
Fruit, sinaasappel, appel, peer
Too young. Lacks depth and complexity.
I haven´t tasted it but would like to comment one thing ...
I see a trend that several whiskies, at least several NAS, is more and more sweet. STOP THAT!
Very sweet, but not in a bad way. Velvety maple notes with dried fruits. One to enjoy with some friends.
Very young and metallic and relies too much on the Glenlivet signature.
