As a fan of Speyside Single Malts, I was a bit surprised and a bit disappointed by the over-all experience of the Glenlivet 12.

On the nose, cinnamon, apple, and spices were all buried under an overwhelming vanilla aroma. A bit of water brought some balance here.

The palate was tannic and very oaky with a curious hint of sour. This curious sour kind of led into a pronounced bitter after-taste on the very short finish.

This dram seemed harsh and astringent. Not my favorite from the region.
