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.
This has always been one of my favorite single malt drams.

Wine Maker Notes
Selective maturation in new Limousin oak casks, usually reserved for wine, has added delicate overtones of the spices highly prized in fine wines while perfectly complementing the subtle elegance of the original malt," explains Jim Cryle, Master Distiller at The Glenlivet Distillery. The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve has an intense and sweet aroma with hints of citrus fruit and cedar wood. The taste is well-structured with an interplay of fruits and spices. This is a beautifully balanced, rich and mellow whisky with a long creamy finish that both connoisseurs and enthusiasts will love.
The pursuit of perfection inherent to the history of the brand is reflected in the consistent quality of the whisky itself. It is a taste that has stood the test of time, demonstrated by the fact that The Glenlivet has won either a trophy or gold medal every year for the last five years in major competitions. Most recently, The Glenlivet 18 Year Old scooped a trophy and gold medal at the 2006 ISC awards and gold medals were awarded for the 12 Year Old and 21 Year Old at the 2006 IWSC awards.
