The Glenlivet French Oak Reserve uses selective maturation in new French Limousin Oak Casks to create a delightful fusion of dry Cedarwood spicy notes and soft fruity & floral aromas. George & J. G. Smith. Guaranteed 15 years of age. The single malt that started it all. Estd. 1824. The Glenlivet 15 yo French Oak Reserve is beautifully structured with an interplay of fruits and spices. The aroma is intense and sweet with hints of citrus fruit. A full palate contrasts notes of ripe mango with cinnamon and white pepper. This leads into a long creamy finish balanced by a teasing, spicy dryness conferred by selective maturation in new French Oak casks. 40% Alc/vol.
