The Glenlivet 15 Year
Are you referring to the French Oak Reserve 15yo or just the 15yo (which I understand is available mainly in duty free shops)? The 15yo French Oak Reserve is fruity, spicey, cedar wood, citrus. Well balanced - long, creamy finish. The Glenlivet 15yo - while I have not had the pleasure of tasting (yet) - has been noted by Martine Nouet as being "Soft and tender. Stewed fruit. Vanilla syrup. Spices gently emerge." -and - part of Dave Broom's description reads - "More interesting to start: apple purée, flowers then the oak grips. Sappy."
