    I was very much suprised how much complexity, flavor, sweetness and spicyness this one has, despite the very low ABV and chill filtration. The French limousine oak definitely left its mark. A very good, widely available whisky for a reasonable price!

    Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve, 40% alc. Original bottling (2021). Maturation: maturing in Limousin wine barrels

    Nose: Mildly sweet and pleasantly fruity. Malt and muesli, crema catalana and baked banana with honey. In addition, oranges and candle wax, various berries and mild spicy aromas, including cinnamon and a little aniseed. Ripe peaches are also emerging.

    Palate: Still very creamy and mildly fruity, but the spices become stronger. Hazelnuts and chestnuts, peach and pear, unripe banana, roasted malt and a good portion of cinnamon. In addition, mild hints of aniseed and nutmeg. All in all, however, very harmonious and closely interwoven.

    Finish: Short to medium length, various nut flavors, a slight sweetness and mild spices linger a little longer.

    Conclusion: An all-round harmonious Glenlivet and very good to enjoy. For me it should like a few more revolutions, that would give it even more complexity. A nice core range malt for the home bar. 84/100 points (2021)

    Pretty nice and delicate item at a good price. The aroma is great, lots of fruit, sweetness, chocolate and flower meadow.
    The taste is not so visible anymore, it becomes more rounded and without a clear dominance of any of the ingredients mentioned in the aroma. Alcohol is completely imperceptible, which makes whisky delicate and very drinkable.
