Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Grassy and floral, with a delicate perfume. Soft citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit, joined by nutty notes of almond and hazelnut.

    Palate: Soft mouthfeel with elegant orange and lemon notes, then some vanilla and toffee adding richness, but this is a delicate, fine-boned single malt with lovely balance and a refreshing character.

    Finish: The juicy citrus notes linger, inviting you to take another sip.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose:  Remarkably flowery, clean & soft

    Body:  Light to medium, firm, smooth

    Palate:  Flowery, peachy, notes of vanilla, delicate balance between sweetness & malty dryness

    Finish:  Long, gently warming

    With citrus notes, almond and hazelnut. Not smoky at all. But good option for killing a bottle with friend :)

    I don't know what it used to be but I had 3 bottles in the last year (2016) and it's just an average whisky now. On nose, vanilla and green apples. On palate, honey and apples. Development is negligible. Finish is unnoticeable.

    If you take honey and add it to immature spirt this is what you get. Thank god I got a free dram. It's still better than mass produced american spirits though.

    Amazing and smooth, mild smokey taste with a complexity to the flavours. Slight taste of orange and peach. The bartender made a mistake and accidentially gave me a glass of this, and I fell in love with it instantly.

    A smooth single malt. fruity with a touch of orange and a slight smoky taste. The finish is long, and has a nice warm feeling. Great for a cold winters night!

    I just received a bottle of this for my birthday. This is the first single malt I ever tasted many years ago before I graduated from blends. While my tastes have since grown more sophisticated I can still appreciate how good this whisky is. You can find it in every liquor store in America and on the top shelf of most bars. It deserves to be there. In my opinion you will discover better malts as your tastes change but there will never be a better introduction to the world of single malt scotch whisky

    I am used to drinking blended Johnny Walker Black. Until now that is. This is the smoothest scotch I've ever had.

    A smooth whisky with an inner warm satisfying feel of contentness

    ... it seemed too malty at first. After I gave it three more tries, I sure noticed some more tinges, but couldn't get rid of this "beerish" trace. Is it what experts call "sweetness", I just wonder :)

    A beautiful whisky. Delicate and smooth. The nose is sweet cream and almonds, definitely pear. On the mouth...honey, vanilla and toffee with a bit plums. The finish is mellow. Not intense but very satisfying. The toffee lingers. Warm with a subtle taste of buttery biscuits. The Glenlivet is exquisite and is simply the genuine article and should be expected in any public house or bar in any good town or borough in any country or state.

    Not every scotch, in order to be great, needs to be some psychotic smoke-bomb from Islay that leaves one feeling like their drank liquefied fireplace. Glenlivet is a fine Scotch, bright and inviting, with some pronounced floral notes on the nose, and a gentle smoothness. Scotch snobbery results in missing out on the full spectrum of what scoth whisky has to offer. Give this one a try - affordable, welcoming, delicious.

    Nicely priced. A bit of a beginner''s single malt to be honest. Light, vanilla but not very distinguished. It''s a good solid whisky, but didn''t give me a "special" feeling.

    I am so disappointed with this product. It''s finish and flavors were not even beating usual blended whiskeys.

    The best nose, palate, aftertaste and kick! What else should I say?
