About this deal

Representing The Glenlivet's signature style, this classic malt is first matured in traditional oak, before spending time in American oak casks which impart notes of vanilla and gives the whisky it's distinctive smoothness. The Glenlivet – as was the Johnnie Walker Black 12 year old that I recently reviewed – was given to me as a gift. Soft mouthfeel with elegant orange and lemon notes, then some vanilla and toffee adding richness, but this is a delicate, fine-boned single malt with lovely balance and a refreshing character.

Despite this mass-marketed bottle with its minimal 40% ABV, it being chill filtered and coloured, I am glad I brought this bottle with me to review.Only reviews that feature the label "Verified Review" have been checked to ensure that the author actually used or purchased the product. I grabbed the one glencairn that I’d brought south with me (the remainder of the Shaw whisky bottles, glasses, etc. uk accepts no liability for inaccuracies or misstatements about products by manufacturers or other third parties.

They say it's a great scotch with very complex flavours, perfect for sipping straight or with a mixer. It struck me as odd, since that bottle was one of the distinguishing characteristics of the 12 year old.The mineral-rich water that comes from Josie’s Well helps form the flavours during mashing and fermentation, whilst the specific height and width of the copper stills add a delicate yet complex character.

When I realised that the liquid I had in my glass was not akin to the Illicit Still expression in its presentation, I was surprised that this 40% whisky was not bad and I wanted to know more.

At the start of the 20th century, The Glenlivet became the favourite whisky for enthusiasts throughout the British Empire.I can see that the Total Wine pricing, which I think is justified, may have led me to becoming more generous with the other pricing of the 12.
