Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch 15 Year Speyside French Oak 50 NV
Antique, amber color. This whisky maintains the elegance cherished by Glenlivet enthusiasts, but finishing the shisky in limousin oak produces a whisky of deeper wood notes, particularly wood spices ( vanilla, sandalwood, perhaps even mint) and floral notes. It's rich complex, and dry -especially on the finish
What's New in Booze - 9.2 out of 10 The aromas are both intense and sweet with notes of cedar and citrus surrounded by vanilla. The palate is beautifully structured with well-balanced flavors of vanilla, cinnamon and mandarin oranges with a touch of pepper. The finish is long and sweet with floral notes and flavors of honey and vanilla.
Not very different than the 12. Good though.
External Reviews for Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch 15 Year Speyside French Oak 50
Selective maturation in new Limousin oak casks, usually reserved for wine, has added delicate overtones of the spices highly prized in fine wines, while complementing the elegance of the single malt.
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. - P.P. (2/1/2005) - Superb/Highly Recommended
