The opening salvo of the Glenlivet range, named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith. It's classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting notes by Stuart P
Very clean and fresh, with notes of grass, freshly cut apples and pear drops, enriched by a rich toffee character. Slight floral note, with menthol and custard-tart notes.
The gentle fruitiness continues on to the palate, with pear the dominant note, accompanied by a refreshing mintiness. Very soft texture and mouthfeel with no rough edges. Easy to drink.
Soft, fruity and whistle-clean.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Delicate aromas of citrus fruit, notably sweet orange.
Sweet, fruit notes of zesty oranges and pears, with a hint of candy, toffee apples. Well-balanced and exceptionally smooth.
Long, creamy and smooth.

A nice way to enter the single malts world and not just on the price. This is a smooth, gentle and fresh whisky with sweet citric nose notes, specially orange. It has a soft creamy mouthfill and keeps the orange promise with a middle persistence, also apple and candy tastes can be noticed. The finish stays on the smooth range with a spicy touch. On a sunny day, at the beach or by the pool this bottle will work for everyone, specially the non initiated and that's what I guess is the focus of this expression.
A pleasant drop of whisky without a wow factor. Get grass and pears on the nose and palate, with a smooth finish I would expect from a speyside. Not a patch on the aged statement from the same distillery, but then didn't really expect it to be. Nice enough but would thoroughly recommend paying a little more for the 12yo.
It is a good whiskey smooth at the beginning but it has some not so pleasant aftertaste that doesnt last long but its still there and just for that i give this one 3 stars.
After trying a miniature of this I asked for this as a birthday present and am loving it. My palette isn't trained enough to pick up on most of the tasters' impressions but when the producer says "creamy & smooth", that sums it up. No harshness, just sip it and enjoy. An absolute bargain.
I’ve heard negative reviews about this whisky and thus felt this whisky was also a bad whisky... till I sat down and tried it, the flavor profile I spot on with the flavor on the whisky (which I find usually to be more pretentious than accurate.) and for the price you can only knit pick for the “negatives.” So in short I liked it a bit rough at the finish but the flavor covers for that I’d recommend this whisky for someone looking to discover the world of whisky and wants to actually taste what it says on the back of the bottle(don’t forget to add your own opinion along with it cuz at the end of the day that’s what counts :-)
