Glenlivet Tasting Notes |
The Glenlivet exhibits the delicacy and softness that typifies the region's whiskies. And because it is so perfectly balanced, it almost seems that there's something new to discover every time you drink it. A perfectly rich balance of sweetness, floral fragrance and fruitiness that The Glenlivet develops through more than 12 years of patient ageing in oak casks. The essential ingredients are pure soft, natural water from Josies well and the finest barley & yeast. But it is this magical combination with the timeless skills of the Master Distiller that makes it so special. Colour: Light, Golden. Nose: Perfectly balanced fruity aroma with delicate floral fragrance and vanilla/honey sweetness. Taste: Classically Speyside, a soft smooth balance of sweet summer fruits and the floral fragrance of spring flowers. Finish: Lingering and gentle.
Wine Enthusiast |
Off-dry malted barley and light toffee smells greet the olfactory sense along with flowery fragrances of heather, rose petal and pine. Entry features sweet grain and candied apricot tastes; the midpalate is mellow, malty, fruity (white raisins, apricots) and sophisticated. Ends on a buttery note. Remains the Speyside benchmark.
