Tasting Notes by Bobbo342
Saw a picture on FB from Glenlivet about their 18 Year Single. They asked for flavors so I figured it was time to do another review.
Nose: very light caramel. The word crisp comes to mind; like the smell of a crisp apple and/or pear freshly cut. Fresh air blowing through the woods.
Palet: A light candied wood flavor at first sip. There is that caramel again with some vanilla extract underneath. Very creamy. Sweet.
Finish: Vanilla, clean and smooth but heavy warmth. Light cinnamon, long finish; hops.
I got the 18 year when I got the 15 year French Oak. I thought the 15 year was better but now I am torn. Overall not a bad dram. Cheers!
