  2. drkrylov scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very drinkable indeed.
    • Nose
      Very perfumy. The typically peachy bouquet of The Glenlivet seems to be accentuated.
    • Taste
      Firm, medium to full, body. Very smooth. Rich and fruity, with slightly more peat than usual.
    • Finish
      Silky, creamy tastes. Vanilla. Some, very restrained, burnt grass, dryness.

    The Glenlivet 12 has a light nose with hints of caramel,
    vanilla, and oak. When tasting I pick up more of the same; no complexity here.  However, there is something to be said for its
    smoothness and lack of anything negative. Everything a successful whisky needs
    to have can be found in the Glenlivet 12; just not in any quantity that would
    make this drink stand out as being above average. Its finish is slightly bitter
    and short. To sum up, this whisky is light, safe, and average in almost every

    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.
