Review - The Glenlivet (12 year old)



I've heard this malt described as a work-a-day dram, and certainly it would be a good first introduction to whisky. That's not a slight, most of us drive common mass produced cars, and most of us drink mass produced whisky. A damed fine dram.

ABV 40 vol
70cl
Price £29
Nose 20/25 - light and floral, honey, vanilla pods, coconut and apple jelly.
Taste 21/25 - very quaffable at 40%, more honey, apples and almonds
Finish 21/25 - pretty short but that's really to be expected at this age and price point

Balance 22/25 - the Ford of whisky, widely available and widely enjoyed.
Total 84/100
