The Glenlivet 12 year old is a smooth and fruitful dram with a stingy and heavy kick at the end. The kind a usually detest. Glenlivet 12 somehow manages to deliver itself in a way that suits me. Maybe it's the oak and honey that manage to settle it down. Glenlivet 12 isn't dry either, which helps me to take the finishing kick much easily.
Glenlivet 12 is one of the fresh ones out there. Even though I didn't like Pineapple Express that much, I like what Seth Rogen and Co have given to the movie business. They bring fresh ways of interpreting the script and improvising in a realistic way.
Pineapple Express also sums up very well one of the key ingredients of the Glenlivet 12 year old.
Nose: Like taking a whiff from sweet summer fragrances. Fruity with sweet creamy vanilla and toffee and hints of oak.
Taste: Tropically fruity with a touch of vanilla. Very smooth with notes of pineapple rising to the cream of the crop.
Finish: This is where the smoothness steps aside and the dram gets interesting. Kicks you nicely in the back of your throat. Though it's a heavy kick, it's not so long in lasting. Has oak and nuts with fruity notes.
Balance: Creamy thick and warm, well balanced with a lasting finish. A very versatile in it's kind.
