THE GLENLIVET 12 YEAR OLD
LIVELY GOLD. PLAYFUL INTERLACING OF FRUITY AND FLORAL AROMAS, PERFECT BALANCE.

EXPERT COMMENTS
This is one of Speysides definitive malts. Deceptively complex, The Glenlivet 12 is one of the classiest, most sophisticated malts.
Paul Pacult, Kindred Spirits

A first-class malt. One of the most popular malts in the world deservedly so.
Wallace Milroy, The Original Malt Whisky Almanac

TASTING NOTES
THE GLENLIVET 12 YEAR OLD, 40%

COLOUR
Bright and lively gold.

NOSE
Without water: Exquisite delicacy of summer-like fragrances. Playful interlacing of floral and fruity aromas. Fresh juicy Chasselas grape, ripe pear, soft apples. And a sensuous touch of exotic fruit (candied pineapple). White lilac. Honeyed blossom (acacia). It opens in time on creamier and richer notes: stewed greengages, ripe apricots, vanilla cr? anglaise, a hint of marshmallow. Oak tenderly enhances that enticing bouquet with more vanilla notes and nutty hints. An echo of toasted oats. Soft spices. Green cardamom, touch of caraway seeds.

With water: Fruity sweetness and oaky tones are brought forward. Cherry plum flan. More toasted notes. Vanilla waffle. Touch of jasmine.

RUBBED ON THE HAND
Dry hay, honey, touch of mint.

PALATE
Without water: Silky feel, flowing on the tongue. Smooth and sweet fruity basket (white peaches, pears poached in a vanilla syrup, a hint of pineapple juice). Honeyed flowers. Almond biscuits.

With water: More honeyed floral notes shine through while spices are toned down. Minty maltiness.

FINISH
Nutty. Marzipan. Fresh hazelnuts. Spicy. Fresh grated ginger.

COMMENT
Glenlivet 12 Year Old shows a perfectly balanced display of fruity and floral flavours. Oak is present but in the distance. This Classic Speyside conveys beautiful images of a fertile orchard, blossoming at springtime and laden with juicy ripe fruit at summertime. Nose and palate offer a warm experience of Speyside fresh and fragrant air. The single malt to choose for a relaxing moment, enjoyed on its own or with a fruit pudding (plum or apricot pie, Belgian waffle with stewed apples, marzipan biscuits).

a cheeky wee malt at a cheeky wee price!:thumbsup:

excellent find:santa:

Quality Speyside single malt at a real good price

Shame about that voucher. I got one with the Nov expiry date. I wrote to Glenlivet and never got an answer. Ho hum.

it's in a box....but NOT the one your thinking off......they did this last year, but it was the 12 year old that comes in a fancy box, with real leather on it, and wax seal.....

Got a nice bottle of aberlour from here last week....it was about the same price.

GREAT DEAL !

No this is the real thing, this is Whisky :thumbsup:

Typical just paid twenty at sainsburys! Heat and Repped!

Well said hooky as you know there is a difference...............

beautiful whisky. hot hot hot!

Don't know if it's common knowledge but you can google it for yourself, apparently Lidl Ben Bracken is actually Speyside Tamnavulin and very pleasant it is too, I first staterd using it to blend with Ardbeg when the tarines of Ardbeg got too much, now I prefer it to Glemmorangie, my previous favourite. It's about £16 a bottle
