The Glenlivet Scotch Single Malt 15 Year French Oak Reserve

The Glenlivet Scotch Single Malt 15 Year French Oak Reserve

Sku: 017738

The 15 Year Oldís distinctive character is the result of selective maturation; a proportion of the spirit is matured in a selection of French Oak casks for a limited period, so as not to overpower the final result. The Glenlivet was one of the first distilleries to use French Oak in the whisky making process, a technique that has since been imitated by many others. Limousin Oak, which is cut in the Dordogne region of France, is often used to mature fine wines and cognacs. In the case of The Glenlivet, its low density allows the spirit to penetrate deep into the wood, imparting the expressionís distinctive spiciness. The French Oak also increases the intensity of the whisky, resulting in a richer and creamier finish.

Orange blossom and custard aromas mingle on the nose with a hint of smoke. Flavors of light caramel, baking spices, buttered toast and toffee create a balance between sweet and savory. The texture is round and soft with a more rustic finish.

Donít dilute this light, gentle Scotch too much. Enjoy the honeyed, fresh tropical fruit aromas and mouthwatering vanilla and almond flavors with a hint of smoke and spice on the finish. Light body. Good value. ó K.N.
