The Glenlivet Single Malt Whisky 12 Years Old 35cl (half bottle) £10 @ Booths

5
Found 22nd Apr 2016
Another dependable classic single malt sadly being out-populated by a founder's reserve-blended whisky. Probably accounts for it's very low price, as they clear these out for the lesser quality stuff.

Glenlivet Scotch Malt Whisky has well-balanced and fruity with strong pineapple notes. Fruity and summer-like fragrances Nose. Creamy and smooth with marzipan and fresh hazelnuts finish. Bright and lively gold colour.

2015 Silver Outstanding Medal Winner - International Wine & Spirits Competition

The delicate and complex character of the 12 year old derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery. This expression is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American and European Oak. Maturation in American oak imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness. The mineral rich water from Josie's Well ensures the best possible results during mashing and fermenting to form the flavours that define this expression. Awarded by International Spirits Challenge 2012: Gold and 2011: Silver; International Wine and Spirit Competition 2012: Silver and 2011: Silver; Spirit of Speyside Whisky Awards 2012: Winner (12 years and under); The Scotch Whisky Masters 2012: Gold and 2011: Gold.

IWSC Awards Tasting Note: Attractive but light nose with ripe pear followed by a wave of malt backed by gentle oak. Floral backing with violets and lavender. Fine entry with smooth flow and fine texture. The ripe fruit takes hold in the mouth and some sweet vanilla makes itself known. Well balanced and firmly held by fine oak.

I bought 8 bottles the other day. This is a scorcher.

Turns out this most popular whisky is being discontinued in the UK, for the no-age-statement blend.

A real shame... Get it while you can.

Very nice single malt. My first. I was introduced to the world of aged single malt. Many of my friends who tried this later were totally impressed with this. It is being discontinued with NAS which far inferior. But this while you can. Stock it.

Hi yes I did search. That was weeks ago though. Actually I remembered your submission, went to my local branch of Booths off the back of it at the time but they were out of stock. I guess they've had another batch in from the main warehouse since? Anyway, there were a fair few left at Booths Knutsford yesterday, but I don't think they will last long. I'm having a tipple now, it's very nice I would also buy a few bottles if I could afford it!
