The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Bottling Note

Excellent 12 year old single malt from the Glenlivet Distillery in Speyside, which enjoys its maturation in both European and American oak casks. It's an immensely popular expression which disappeared from shelves in 2015, but has since returned! A great example of the character of Glenlivet's whisky, boasting a bounty of orchard fruit, fragrant florals and honeyed malt notes carried on a creamy mouth feel.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Apricot, pineapple, greengages, citrus blossom and toasted teacake.

Palate: Buttery and vanilla-rich, though still packing all the bright fruit notes from the nose.

Finish: A soft crackle of oaky spice and malt, plus a hint of red apple juiciness.

Glenlivet 12 Year Old Reviews

A very good single malt

Smooth fruity whisky with a character. Taste gets better few days after opening the bottle.
One of my favourite during summer.

Fruit, vanilla and oak in excellent balance.

Decide to take a break from my usual islay whisky and I am glad I did. Very smooth and rich in fruity flavours. The distinct oak on the finish is very much to my liking. This will not be my last bottle!

Very easy to drink, good nose and good taste!

Very good, sweet, fruity and easy to drink. Good nose, good taste, very smooth! Will buy more of this good stuff!

I'll be buying this one again.

This is a truly great taste experience! I put this near the top of my single malt choices. It's gentle on the tongue, yet has a very distinct flavor. Very enjoyable; drinkable. Not a challenge to to "get used to." Also, very reasonably priced.

Thought was worse than original

Man I’ve been neglecting to try this since I thought the double barrell was just another gimmick and relentlessly tried other brands to my disappointment, finally at a whim because of short notice I bought this and am quite surprised, and actually like it better than the original because the original seemed like it had more bite as if a bad batch, but this is smoother and fruiter and the same quality if not better...

Single Malt - Really?

Another off my list - Glenmorangie or Glenffidich in future

Real departure from the original soft rounded flavour - now overly smoky peat taste none of the vanilla richness

Very pleasant

Sweet, fruity, smooth. It appeals to my taste!

A very good single malt.

An excellent all rounder. Fits to anyone who likes SM. Floral, fruity and not so complex but has a character. I like it very much.

Average at best

I bought a bottle on offer and am pleased I haven’t paid the full retail price. I was expecting a much smoother dram but I found it very harsh. Overall very disappointed with this. I’ll come back to it in winter to see if it’s more palatable.
