Mellow delivery with a heavenly kick!
First time trying this whiskey. Generally I''m a cognac drinker but tonight while at the bar this bottle of Glenlivet 12 just kept staring at me so I tried it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This is a damn good drink.
Sometimes a lighter, smoother whiskey is desired and when it is, Glenlivet 12 fits the bill. I enjoy all ranges of smokiness in a Scotch, but not all the time. Glenlivet 12 never disappoints.
Frankly I''m a bit disappointed with Glenlivet 12yo, its mellow and light, but simple and almost tasteless.
This maybe great for beginners but whisky enthusiasts do not approve. Very plain and simple, an industrial standard single malt.
I received this has a Christmas gift from a good friend. And as soon as it entered my mouth I just knew that this was a very, very good whisky. Thanks you very much and I will be buying it again.
A Scotch I actually enjoy more with ice. Typically I will add a few drops filtered water to my whiskers, but actually I find the Glenlivet 12 to be too harsh this way. With a large cube of ice, suddenly the liquor is creamy and of tart apple. Very curious.
No doubt as soon as it touches your taste buds you will know this is quality and smooth, cannot imagine it being better with a longer maturation.
I really like the sweetness of Speyside whiskys and this certainly doesn't disappoint. Colour is bright with shimmering gold. Nose is of a summer meadow with ripe fruits. Palate is again ripe fruit wirh fresh but sweet notes. Could perhaps be a little smoother for my palate. Finish is long with hints of fresh coconut and a hint of almonds. For the price and age this is a lovely dram. Like I said could maybe be a tiny bit smoother on the palate but nothing to really gripe about and I'm probably being rather picky! Maybe competes with my favourite Old Pulteney 12 - although they are very different whiskys !
Fairly new to this whisky lark, I'd been avoiding paying for the more common malts, wanting to get a taste for the more unusual, and so I imagined, the more interesting. However, I picked up a bottle of this cheap last week, and now all I want is more of it. It's delicious. You can drink it neat as a warming nightcap or with a couple of ice cubes if you're after something a bit fresher. Ice, rather than spoiling it, brings out a different taste altogether. Very, very impressed.
