Glenlivet – 12 Year Single Malt

Glenlivet-12THE COLOR IS ALARMING, it must first be said: a synthetic-looking orange of unnatural transparency and vibrancy. Legs sturdy but not too thick. Aroma of fresh oak grain, lightly of barley, orange peel, and vanilla. A little hot on entry to the palate, but pleasantly peppery once it establishes itself. Quite a pop of orange again, as found concentrated in chocolate, then coriander and coca again in a thinning finish. Doesn’t last too long and a little too watery to respect deeply. A Speyside ‘daily dram’.
