Glenlivet 12 Year Old "Double Oak" Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #620004 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Look for a honey hue and super-fresh, bright orchard fruit aromas. The drying palate shows oak and vanilla, plus darker hints of espresso and clove. The finish is lifted by a pleasing hint of lemon cream pie. Sip or mix. *Best Buy* (KN) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark As with the ‘Fiddich (reviewed in this issue), here’s a malt where an improved wood policy has brought a dram to life and added complexity. The Glenlivet has always been about lightness, but the trick is to have sufficient solid base to allow its flower to blossom, so as well as lily, orchid, and pineapple, there’s a thick creaminess that gently beds all of these flighty flavors down. With water, there’s mandarin and rose petal, and a sneeze of white pepper. Simply lovely. *Value Pick* (DB, Summer 2013) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

The Distillery updated the name and packaging to the classic 12 year in 2019. The world famous standard now goes by the name "Double Oak" and has a brightly colored box, but the whisky remains unchanged and as traditional as ever. The Glenlivet was the first legal distiller in Scotland (1824) and the only one allowed to be called "The Glenlivet." What Grande Champagne is to Cognac, the glen of the river Livet is to Speyside--the most famous Speyside Highland malts. *** Note this is the new clear bottle with the new label, not the green bottle ***

Glenlivet 12 is the ubiquitous favorite of so many, there's just nothing wrong with it. It's a benchmark whisky and responsible for defining an entire style and introducing an entire generation of drinkers to single malt. It remains a wonderful value and one of best-selling whiskies in the store.

Glenlivet is removing the 12 year old from many major markets in favor of the new "Founder's Reserve", which has no age statement and a higher price. Get your Glenlivet 12 before it goes the way of the Dodo.
