Glenlivet French Oak 12 year old, 40%

Price: $36 Issue: Spring 2000 Reviewer: John Hansell

Antique amber color. This whisky maintains the elegance cherished by Glenlivet enthusiasts, but finishing the whisky in limousin oak produces a whisky of deeper wood notes, particularly wood spices (vanilla, sandalwood, perhaps even mint) and floral notes. It's rich, complex, and dry-especially on the finish.
