Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt
Two centuries ago, the illicit whisky from the remote and wild region of Glenlivet was sought after for its smooth and characterful qualities. Those same qualitues are there today in an abundance.
COLOUR: Bright and lively gold.
NOSE: Exquisite delicacy of summer-like fragrances, with playful interlacing of floral and fruity aromas. A sensuous touch of exotic fruit, notably pineapple. It opens in time on creamier and richer notes of stewed greengages and ripe apricots. Oak tenderly enhances that enticing bouquet with more vanilla and nutty notes and an echo of toasted oats.
PALATE: Honeyed floral notessahine through. A silky feel, flowing on the tongue. Smooth and sweet fruit notes of white peaches and pears poached in vanilla syrup.
FINISH: Marzipan and fresh hazelnuts followed by a gentle spiciness of grated ginger.
