Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 12-year-old
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.18 points
- Smell: In the farm restaurant in the early summer, the blue sky is covered with thin clouds, and the gentle breeze is gentle. I hold the rocking chair and look at the green plants. I smell the pink and crisp green apples, the sweet farm honey, and the warm aroma of malt. Fresh and pleasant, outright cheerful
Drink: Shun! Plump and soft! The powdery tannin politely propped up a skeleton in the mouth, and the aroma of malt and apple gently wrapped around the skeleton, like eating a piece of apple, very pleasing
Feeling: It’s absolutely right that Glenlivet is called Spey’s benchmark. This is simply a swordsman online game. Hosting your young lady in Xinshou Village, kindly and tenderly tell you everything about Spey, and show you. Look at the flowers, fruits and malt, and then taste the full and smooth taste. This experience is great. If you have friends who want to come to the world of whisky, don't forget to recommend this young lady
- New livery and the first time I’ve had this bottle since I first started drinking whisky with this bottle 10 years ago. Nose is very pleasant fruity and sweet barley, but I really have to stick my nose into the glass to pull anything out of it. On the palette, this starts off super soft and watery. The 40% abv isn’t doing this one any favours. Citrus fruits and honey. On the finish it gets more bite and becomes more salty and savoury.
A basic malt in every sense. Based on flavours and aromas, a straight up 80 pointer. However, I really do have to dock it a few points for the weak watery texture.
For Cdn $63/£37, there are better values to be had for the money.
- I like the new version. Similar to the old 12yo OB, but the fuselal carbon influence is even less. PGV outstanding at € 25 in April 2020!
Sweet and fruity. Honey, vanilla, overripe fruits such as peach and oranges and a light glue note from the bourbon barrel.
Light body but viscous. In the mouth, the fruits dominate, the sweetness is less present here, but a spicy oak note moves into the foreground.
Short, dry finish. Here you unfortunately notice the youth, because here the whisky lacks perseverance.
Remember the 12yo disappeared for a while? Founders Reserve proved no match and back came the 12yo.
C: Would you believe that? There is indeed a firm family resemblance between this current 12yo and that amazing 1938 cask sample. Other than that, this contemporary bottling would need 20 more years in cask and 40 more in glass for there to be any reasonable further comparisons. This 12yo is very fair whisky in its own right.

"The nose on this single malt is just delightful, particularly in the fact there's only bottled at 40%."
