Once been the finest distillery of Scotland's Speyside, 'The' Glenlivet is still hanging in there. Its 12-year-old expression remains one of the best-selling Single Malts in the world and is a suitable alternative to Glenfiddich 12. Showing a surprising complexity, the nose is floral, fresh and delicate, emphasizing on pears and citrus fruits. On the palate, Glenlivet 12 is light and sweet, malty-fruity and easy to drink. Not a lot in the finish though: It's quick, mildly bitter and not very substantial. A classic and straightforward benchmark whisky without any edges or highlights.
RATING: 3.4/5.0 ≙ 85 pts

Very smooth to the point of being void of flavor. Will not offend, but hard to pull much flavor out of this.
