This bottle of Glenlivet was shared among great friends I call Brothers. That alone starts the experience off the right way. However this was the second time enjoying a dram or two of this 15 year old nectar.

The Nose: creamy, smooth but warm citrus. Orange and Toffee.

The Palate: Oakieness and toasted cinnamon; maybe a pepperyness at first. It is followed by roasted nuts, maybe almonds. Very smooth.

The finish: Warm...Definitely a burnt nut flavor. I can't help but say hints of nutmeg as well.

Liquid gold in a bottle. And priceless when shared among brothers. Cheers!

Excellent review I've thought about starting the Glenlivet series with the French Oak 15. It sounds like its worth it.

Thanks for the review. I really enjoy the standard Glenlivet 12 and I have a bottle of the French Oak 15 in my cabinet. I'm really looking forward to opening it. Sure, it's not an exotic dram or nearly as interesting (on the surface) as many whiskies I have but there's just something about Glenlivet that has me coming back for more at those times when I just want an uncomplicated but reliable and satisfying single malt experience. Cheers.

You said it best..."Uncomplicated but reliable, satisfying single malt."

Gotoak: I think so... I actually liked the French Oak 15 better than the Glenlivet 18yo....
