Glenlivet - $11
This whisky has been called a lot of things in its time: smooth, fruity, complex, sophisticated, entertaining, classic. The Original Malt Whisky Almanac says: “A first-class malt. One of the most popular malts in the world – deservedly so.”
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old’s legendary smooth character and tropical fruity notes come from spending quality time in a mix of American oak casks, which have been seasoned with Bourbon, and European oak. On the nose you might pick up summer-like fragrances and tropical fruits. These fruits are also evident on the palate as well as a well-balanced floral smoothness, followed by a creamy finish with nutty hints of marzipan and fresh hazelnuts.
