    "Nose" Very fruity and floral. Roses, cherries and dark berries. Not the most incredible of aromas to rise out of my glass, but that's ok because the price was not the most incredible either. "Palate" Cherry, rich dark plums and of course oak. Creamy. An exotic oak, but not too exotic such that it is weird. All pleasing flavors here. Soft, enjoyable, very drinkable texture. Nice firm mouthfeel to this one. "Finish" Vanilla, more oak and drying a bit. Not super long, but not bad either.

    This scotch is miles from the 12 year-old. If one wants a very smooth, fruity taste, it makes one hesitate to swallow. I have to wonder why I waited so long. That Limousin French Oak finish, that je ne sais quoi...!

    It gives a smokey nose. As you sip you get the usual tingle at the top of the mouth. On the exhale of breath after you can note a berry and vanilla. A slight dash of water will null the sting and bring out more of the flavours. A good all round single for the money, however others in its range can be more interesting and more available in local shops. 4*

    Good product, I personally find the 12 a bit lacking on delivery and slightly unrefined in terms of the raw alchohol taste. The 15 solves all this, it tastes like the 12 but just more oomph! Its more flavourful, pronouced, and is more complex than the 12, not to mention it is super smooth. I would have rated it higher because I think it''s downfall is that it should of been bottled at 43% .

    There is complexity to this whisky. I won''t repeat what has been said regarding nosing and tasting notes. The only observation k have is that the nose, for me, is almost like a strong perfume. I added a little water to calm it down. Addi a little water also allowed the fruit notes, typical found in the Glenlivet 12yo to come out. I must say that I enjoy the 12yo a bit more than the 15yo. However, if I were to recommend any Glenlivet, it would be the Nadurra 16yo. The one I referring is not the Oloroso batch. I would like to see what the Glenlivet ''expressions, would taste like if they didn''t chill filtered.

    I shop in the £25-£50 range and this is great. Not overly complex or fascinating but bloomin' lovely all the same. A gorgeous floral and vanilla nose and early in the bottle a hint of banana which i loved. Unfortunately this seemed to disappear after a week or so of opening but still didn't stop me finishing it a bit too quickly. I like a sweet scotch with a long oaky finish and this doesn't disappoint. Not my favourite but it's not far behind.

    I found this Whisky to be very dull. I've not got the experienced pallet of some reviewers, but I fail to see why anyone would rate this. There are much more interesting 15 year old Whisky's than this and Glenfiddich 15 is one of them. Yes its a much more mainstream choice, but there's a very good reason called Solera.

    I really enjoy this Single Malt Scotch Whiskey,smooth to the palate.A bit of smokiness,and goes down just rigth!I have compared this to JWB (Johnnie Walker Black) ,but Glenlivet 15 is better!Enjoy my friend.

    Glenlivet French Reserve is comparable to Johnnie Walker Black Lable. The French Reserve is a bit smokery,but can,t go wrong with either one.

    Quality stuff - can't go wrong with this one.

    fantastic scotch for the $

    Being from Australia, a few cubes of ice is essential in the warmer months. The rest of the year, I drink mine neat. A matter of personal preference although I do add some water to higher alcohol whisky.

    So smooth. Responds well to water.
