Glenlivet 15 YO French Oak Reserve

Another new whisky for me at a recent nosing and tasting experience was the Glenlivet 15 yo French Oak Reserve.

The taste was nice but not as good as the nose. It was sweet with vanilla and creamy buttery notes. Pleasant but not as exciting as the nose indicated.

Saying that I would not refuse a dram of this; the finish was lovely, smooth and sweet.

This whisky was very popular in the tasting session, and is a great buy, selling at reasonable prices in my local supermarket. So keep your eye out for this one, and buy if it if you get the chance.

Overall a nice sweet whisky, gentle and smooth, and quite enjoyable, with a very nice and lingering sweet finsih.
