A really superb Glenlivet, the best we've had in this price range for a long time. Delicious shortbread nose, with white chocolate and dollops of natural caramel. The palate is a delight, with patisserie, ginger, pepper and cocoa notes. Fabulous.

For the price this is an outstanding Malt. I take on board the suggestions of 5ml (or as taste likes) of water. My favourite way to accommodate this suggestion is with the use of an ice cube, the best way is to make the ice from bottled water, preferably highland, water from the same region!
More than a single measure otherwise the water (melting ice) will wash away the flavour. Drink slowly over the ice, and top up if becomes too watered. Then don't drive!

Add one teaspoon (5ml) of water to one measure for the Glenlivet Distillery recommended blend. The water releases the flavours giving you the full taste. If pre-watered down the flavours lose their strength over time.

I had really high hopes for this but I was disappointed. Too much chill-filtering going on generally but this is not what you want as an example. Far from rich, this was just sharp. It claws. Without the drop of water it's just unpalatable. Best Glenlivet IMHO is the 1995 15yr old non-chillfiltered on the left there. I would encourage you all to have a dabble on Tomintoul, the 14yr non-chilfiltered is a marvellous dram!

If you add just a tiny bit of pure water to the glass you will allow much more flavour to be released as you cannot taste up to this, high level of alcohol. This is a fabulous whiskey that is substantially better than many over twice the price. I would recommend this to anyone.

A lovely golden colour and lush cream soda

After tasting in Scotland, I am spoiled by it's smooth and delicious taste. It is very potent but at home, that is alright once in a while. Another good choice is Johnnie Walker Green Label, a bit gentler but also something to be savored with friends and family.

I tasted the 48% edition and it was a bit too bourbonny for me. I could not feel any white chocolat there neither. I'd describe it as a more rounded 12yo with lesser fruit aromas. It is elegant but a bit bland for me. Maybe the 58% edition is better?

The retail travel edition is bottled at the strength of 48% ABV. But still is non-chill filtered:)

Guys, this is a masterpiece comparable at this price range only with the Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or:)

I like to pour this whisky and let it stand for a while before drinking it. Another great whisky from Glenlivet which I'm sure I will be buying this one again.

Such rave reviews - and I'll have to wait to place my own for the one in the drinks cabinet, I discovered on closer inspection of the label, was bottled in Oct. 2007 - the month my love of whisky began with a visit to Glenlivet. It's the first in my collection, then! Whisky drinkers can be quite sentimental, can't they?

The alcohol content was of no concern to me. The pallet was superb and it was so smooth. Definately one to be savoured and sipped slowly. Enjoy every moment of it, I do and will when I purchase yet another bottle.

57.7 alcohol to be exact!
- anonymous, 27th Feb '09
A great whiskey even for a beginner like me. In my opinion its better than many 18 years whiskeys. Plus theres the 60% alcohol which you dont feel in the taste. THIS IS A MUST!!!!

I normally partake of the 12 year old Glenlivet,a friend "ruined" my savings account when he poured me a double dram of this beauty..I surrendered gladly!
