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 NotesNose: Remarkably flowery, clean & soft
Body: Light to medium, firm, smooth

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?
Smooth and flavoursome.
