🛒 The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky 🛒
The single malt that started it all. The Glenlivet 12 Year Old is a perfectly balanced Speyside single malt Scotch Whisky, with a lively gold colour and playful interlacing of floral and fruit aromas. Representing The Glenlivet's signature style, this classic single malt whisky is matured for a minimum of 12 years, first in traditional European oak, before spending time in American oak casks. This imparts notes of vanilla and gives the whisky its distinctive smoothness. 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.
Serving suggestion: Drink to your own preference; straight up, in a cocktail, or simply with a drop of water to open the creamy, smooth character. When serving with ice, large cubes are recommended to allow slow dilution releasing the creamy, sweet characters.
