George Smith, the founder of the Glenlivet Distillery, in 1824, was the first to produce a whisky of such exceptional quality that it was soon widely acknowledged to be how a malt whisky should taste and rightfully earned the name 'The Glenlivet'.

The exceptional character of the Glenlivet spirit is apparent even before the cask ageing process begins, a result of the unique lantern shaped pot stills we use at the Glenlivet. For the Glenlivet founder's reserve, skilful selection of casks enhances the signature fruity flavours of the Glenlivet with traditional oak casks being complemented by selective use of American first-fill casks to give a hint of creamy sweetness creating an exceptionally well-balanced and smooth malt.

Seems a good price to me, so heat added; (but why so many 'colds' without comment?).

Not bad whisky at a good price heat added.

Often this price and not a very well liked whisky on the whole it seems. It's been slated since word go by many. Haven't voted either way.

Amazon are price matching too.

'Slated' but 'award winning'. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

ps......there's no point in voting here now. We have deals which are £2 MORE than the best price going mega-hot and deals which are way UNDER the next best price going cold.
This is now an absolutely stupid system and someone needs to get a grip.

Good price for a single malt. Heat added

This is one of my favourite single malts, very fruity and doesn't have the peaty/smoky edge that a lot do. Very nice to drink without anything, even water. It's £24 in most places atm so this is the cheapest I've seen it

Amazon aren't price matching, it's been that price there for a couple of weeks now.

I've not voted either way, but I can understand the cold votes, this is a sub-par malt for the price which is vastly inferior to the 12yo Glenlivet that it replaced. There are far better alternatives around this price if you shop around.

I voted cold because It's not very good imo the 12 year old it replaced was much nicer and you can get nice NAS for £18.50 from asdas extra special range.

2.5/5 from 200 votes on master of malt site, one of the lowest rated whiskies on there. Plenty better at this price point.

This bottle has been my “go to” for a while now, fantastic flavour.

good price for sure. i also like it

cold cold cold this whisky is a replacement for glenlivet 12 year old which is now a export only whisky, i have emailed glenlivet to ask how old this new whisky is and had no reply but I believe its only 5 year old. they export the good stuff and try to sell the rubbish to us. there are far better whisky's than this crap on offer.

Taste buds not what they were so not sure if I can appreciate the single malts . Yes I have tried several and they were more money than this .
As for blended I do like the Famous Grouse .

I hate this move away from age-specific whiskies

Spend an extra £2 and buy a bottle of Aberlour 10 year old..

I saw this advertised on a huge railway billboard this morning. Maybe Glenlivet want to make this the mass market bottle of choice this Xmas. The 15 is really nice if you see it for £30ish BTW

I bought this off the Amazon deal last week. The best I can say is that it is ok for the price. It comes in a nicely present box and wrapping and the bottle looks classy. The actual whisky is smooth, unpeated, but tends towards being bland. I wouldn't buy again.

£20 is overpriced considering some of the super markets own label single malts from mystery distillerys are cheaper and superior.

Smells great. In the mouth, ok. Finish, a little too harsh. It’s Glenlivet’s most basic single malt.
Go for a singleton instead for almost the same price.
