Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 12-year-old
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.14 points
- See also tasting note. Slightly wholesome single malt presented in a wonderful package that promises premium whisky. In fact, then comes only an average malt, not a bad, but a little boring whisky. Dilute 6% less and do not cool it down and I'm sure there would have been more to get out, especially since the remaining notes are all interesting. The great packaging raises the rating a bit but ultimately it remains a 3+.
- Yeah, ok, those were the last sips from a bottle that I put away for a long time and that I remembered more positively than the whisky gives. Yes, it is very wholesome and delicious, but also a bit boring. Thinning down to 40% does the rest and you just have to cut a little less water.
Very fruity, lemon, apple, peach. Freshly mowed lawn.
Slightly watery, popcorn, chocolate and lemon. Otherwise very fruity and sweet. The second sip of vanilla. Slightly charred toast.
Relatively short with distant malt and a hint of peat. Otherwise dominate vanilla and oak.
- One of my old time favourites. Allthough i am more in to islay peat nowadays, this one is still very enjoyable because of its balance and familiarity.
- A nice light dram.
Fresh, fruity, flowery, light sweet notes (reduced: more fruit and malt).
Light sweet with spicy caramel, gentle and pleasant (reduced: buttery and soft, smooth with light spicy flavor nuances.
Light and spicy notes from wood.
