  6. Koning scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Much rounder and softer than the original Glenlivet 12. The French oak has imparted spices like cinnamon and ginger, giving this Glenlivet a soft 'christmas feel' while retaining it's freshness. It's nice sipping whisky, not too complex.
    • Nose
      Fresh laundry(very glenlivet),vanilla,red apple, citrus fruits and a bit flowery. Later on notes of cinnamon and fresh baked bread appear.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla fudge, grapefruit, stewed pears, christmas bread, ginger and a whiff of smoke.
    • Finish
      Cloves, almonds, vanilla, caramel, oranges and a tiny bit of smoke.
