Type: Scotch
Varietal: Single Malt
Country: Scotland

Proof: 80

"First whiffs pick up scents of fresh pineapple, cedar, and paraffin; later sniffings detect subtle notes of baked pear and sweet oak. Palate entry features a firm, moderately oily, and velvety texture; by midpalate, integrated flavors of ripe peach, pear drops and bran delight the taste buds. Finish is extended, semisweet and coconut-like. Replaces the 12-year-old French Oak Finish. Best Buy." 90-95 pts.

Macallan 12 Year Old Traditional

"The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside’s standard-bearer 12 year olds." 90-95 pts.

Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve

Balvenie 14 year old Carribean Rum Cask Finished

A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Great viscosity with good grip on the finish. I really like the balance in this whisky—nice complexity too! A very solid effort and the price is right.

Glenlivet 15 March 05, 2014
Reviewed by: Hawkeye

Nose - Leads off on pine, resinous, kind of like rosemary. Lemon, honey, vanilla, "green" fruitiness (apple, pear), brown sugar, clove and a bit of almond in the background. Floral. Taste - starts off slightly bitter and plywood-y, developing in to some honey, vanilla, and nutty flavors. Something is kind of raw tasting about this. Finish is on the green fruit with a bit of honey and clove.Overall this isn't really that well balanced...while I very much like older Glenlivet, and the Nadurra, this doesn't do it for me. Spend your $60 elsewhere.

The Glenlivet 15 French Oak February 16, 2014
Reviewed by: RT

Oak is apparent on the nose, along with apples, pumpkin, vanilla, and allspice. Palate: Oak and vanilla flavors continue, fruit flavor turns towards pears. A malty note emerges. Buttery mouth feel. Finish: Oak peaks in the finish, flavors turn from fruity to spicy. Cinnamon, toffee, bitter cocoa, and nutmeg. Overall: The oak flavor dominates, but doesn't overpower everything else. Nothing outstanding. A higher ABV could help a lot. 82/100
