The Glenlivet French Oak Reserve

 |  Libations  |  No Comments

The Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15 year old ($40) is one single malt that should not be missed by anyone with a taste for Highland scotch.  A deep, elegant malt with astonishing body nuances. Smells of dusky rose, honey and cereal, then breaks out toasty on the palate, with a flash of hard candy, honey, licorice and chocolate. The long finish alone is reason to drink this, resonating with the flavors while adding a charming, rooty grittiness before ending with a pleasant astringency.
