Description of The Glenlivet 12 Year old

The Glenlivet 12 Year old

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: The Glenlivet 12 Year old presents a bright and vibrant golden hue.
  • Aroma: A soft, clean noseful of spring flowers and summer fruits with light underlying grassy and nutty qualities.
  • Taste: Fruity and balanced on the palate, creamy and medium-bodied with distinctive honeysuckle and pineapple notes. A warm lengthy finish with a citrus and vanilla flourish and incredible smoothness that invites you back for more. Complex, entertaining, and sophisticated.

PRODUCER: The Glenlivet distillery, owned by Pernod Ricard. After a few years of illicit distilling, in 1824 George Smith rode from the remote and isolated Livet valley to Elgin to seek the first legal distilling licence in the parish. In 1884 the company became the only distillers in the valley able to use the valley's name, by the simple and clever addition of the initial three-letter-word The. These many decades on, this Speyside dram remains as beloved as it was by King George IV and Charles Dickens.

COUNTRY: Scotland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: A classic and globally popular expression of The Glenlivet's signature style. After first maturation in traditional oak, further maturation takes place in American oak casks which creates the vanilla notes and gives it its distinctive smoothness. Mineral-rich water from Josie's Well helps to craft flavour during mashing and fermentation, while the height and width of the copper stills lend more character.

ALCOHOL: 40%

Un buen whisky, a muy buen precio. Nada que envidiar con otros mucho mas caros.

Se nota el primer relleno, se saborea mas la madera.

Muy contento con la compra.

The Glenlivet 12 Years

4 /5

Glenlivet 12 Jahre Inhalt: 0,7 Liter 40% vol. Mit Farbstoff Tasting-Notes: Leichter und geschmeidiger Whisky. Aromen von Blumen, Vanille und saftigen Früchten. Im Abgang sanft. Informationen Im Jahre 1823 wurde die Destille von George Smith als erste legale Destille gegründet. Die Namensrechte (The Glenlivet) wurden im Jahre 1880 geschützt. 1977 wurde die Destille an den US-Konzern Seagram verkauft. 2001 dann kaufte Pernod Ricard The Glenlivet auf. Für die Abfüllungen von Glenlivet werden Fässer aus amerikanischer Eiche verwendet in denen zuvor Bourbon oder Sherry gelagert wurde. Für den Charakter eines Whiskies ist auch die Form der Brennblasen von Bedeutung. Der Gründer von Glenlivet erfand die Brennblase in Form einer Laterne. Bis heute werden diese für den Brennvorgang verwendet. Meist wird der Whisky im Alter von 12- und 18 Jahren abgefüllt, seltener mit 21 Jahren. Unabhängige Abfüller wie Gordon & MacPhail bringen in mehr oder weniger regelmässigen Abständen eigene Abfüllungen von sehr guter Qualität heraus.
