The Glenlivet 15 Year Old is a Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky from the internationally acclaimed Glenlivet Distillery. Renowned for expressing a bitter sweet score married with beautifully controlled balance and unwavering elegance, the Glenlivet brand has grown over 200 years to become the world's second biggest selling single malt.
Maturation in meticulously selected new French Limousin oak casks creates the characterful expression that is unique to The Glenlivet 15 Year Old. The rich, spicy notes of French oak interplay with the fruity and floral notes of The Glenlivet, creating the exquisite single malt that is detectable in well-reputed blends such as Chivas Regal and Royal Salute Scottish Whiskies. Creamy, rich and smooth, The Glenlivet 15 is the perfect dram to be savoured for its sweet-tooth character and refreshingly nutty style.
91 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018 "I have to say that after tasting nearly 800 cask strength whiskies, to come across something at the ancient 40% is a shock to the system. My taste buds say merci...and what is more, a bottle of this shall remain in my dining room for guests."
Tasting Note: Citrus, orange peel and candied grapefruit aromas. Buttery notes, shortbread, almond brandy snaps, vanilla toffee, fudge sauce with a touch of liquorice. Luscious chocolate fudge lingers on. Traces of toasted hazelnuts and lightly smoked almonds.
