The Glenlivet 12

Item Description

If you want to get into Single Malts, this is where to begin.

Glenlivet 12 is quite possibly the best value in Single Malts. It's available everywhere from drug stores to Sam's Club to the finest liquor stores. It runs between $25 and $35 depending on your region. It mixes well, goes great on the rocks and is always enjoyable neat, my favorite way.
The quality is definately high, while not the highest, it is very good and from bottling to bottling they have put out a consistently good product.

The flavor is very good and an excellent Scotch in warm or cold weather. It's flavor is very light and clear and surprisingly soft and works quite well as an aperatif. It's also a lighter bodied Scotch. Peach is a prominent flavor component followed up by spring floral notes and vanilla. The finish is light, but will last and will slowly warm you up. The aroma is very similar but with keener malt notes.

This Scotch is not the finest on the market, and it makes no bones about it. It is a good product, has always been one and probably will always be one. I always keep a bottle on hand and I know I always will. Glenlivet 12 is a good friend who'll never hurt you and you'll always be able to count on.

I just bought a bottle the other day, it was my first single malt and I really enjoyed it. While I probably don't have a very sophisticated palet, I did notice the hint of vanila that Tim mentioned.
