One of the most famous malts in the world. Glenlivet 12yo has a soft smooth balance of sweet summer fruits and the floral notes of spring flowers.

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

    Quite a light malt, flavours aren't too complex but are very well balanced.

    Rises to your nose first with a citrus sweet aroma. The taste is smooth and awakening as it rolls over your tongue.

    Consume often as it is superb alone or with Drambuie in the best Rusty Nail possible. Always impresses, even non-Scotch drinkers.

    This is a go-to scotch for many, for good reason. Probably the standard for Speyside.

    Absolutely the smoothest whiskey I’ve ever consumed... The only whiskey I will drink neat. There is a certain Champagne-like quality to the aroma, and oak and vanilla flavours come through as well... A fantastic Scotch!

    Smooth. Lingering fruity flavours with a hazelnut aftertaste.

    As smooth as it gets. Not as smoky or as full bodied as I'd like. A good starter Scotch, an ambassador of the style.

    Yes, sweet and smooth but below expectations. Am I the only one to find some undesired wood in aftertaste ?

    The perfect easy-drinking malt. Smooth and spicy, with apples and pears. Hard to beat.

    It's a single malt that taste like a single malt should. Enough spice for me to say aaaahyesss! And just the right hit when I fell it going down. The buzz is pleasantly warming and after a dram or two I wake up up clear headed. And it goes extremely well with my favorite cigar. While my 12 year old Yamasaki is smooth and sweet the livet 12 has just enough kick to remind you it's a speyside scotch.
