Glenlivet French Oak 15 Yr. Scotch

Item # 12881 750mL

The oak aging in this release ensures that the tastes unfold slowly in subtle layers. Incense spice aromas open into strawberry and pineapple cream flavors, then turn into waffles and sweet brandy in the midpalate with a sweet malt finish. A great buy for whiskey fans who don't like intense peatiness.

Staff Pick Notes

Glenlivet is the best selling malt whiskey in the United States and the distillery in Scotland has been active since 1824. Glenlivet products are known for their delicate notes. This product is no exception but the aging time and the new oak used create complexity and a full range of flavors. The water used for the distillation is rich of mineral and this factor helps flavors to blend together in an harmonious way. On the nose, you'll notice citrus; on the palate, smooth orange, vanilla, cinnamon and peppery notes. It's a very balanced whiskey with a delicate texture. It's an ideal drink for someone searching for a super smooth finish. Easy to drink and playful!
