Item #163451
Size: 750ml
Type: Scotch
Varietal: Single Malt
Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Proof: 86

"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.

Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve

"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.

Speyside Standard-bearer May 24, 2014
Reviewed by: Whiskycat

On the nose, sweet cherry and vanilla, with oak wood, grapes, and some spice. Almost cognac-like. On the palate, extremely rich, with more notes of cherry, raisin, and vanilla. There are some spicy qualities like ginger and nutmeg (maybe cinnamon also). It finishes with more wood and some nuttiness, with a bit of toffee. Very smooth…no burn.This is a remarkably flavorful and rich malt. Excellent oak wood finish with black cherry and vanilla flavors. This is the definitive example of sherry-influenced Speyside malts at this price point, and one which will definitely be a standard of comparison for all others.
