Glenlivet French Oak Reserve 15 Year Old Single Malt

Glenlivet is a name synonmous with excellence in Single Malt Scotch production and this 15 Year old gem aka, the smooth flowing one, is a true delight to experience.

Producer’s Notes: “This complex whisky is as rich as you would expect on the nose, but also filled with aromas of orange peel and candied grapefruit. The palate is very round, smooth and slightly sweet, with fruity and nutty flavours underlined with the subtle spice of cinnamon. This gives way to lingering hint of toasted almonds and hazelnuts.”


COLOR

Rich and golden.

AROMA

Oaky on the nose with a bit of smoke, almond and spice.

TASTE

Very smooth and mature.  Long and lingering.

THE BOTTOM LINE

What can you say about a Glenlivet Single Malt that has not already been said.  An excellent bottle to sit back and enjoy with good company and a few cigars.  Highly recommend!

Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky

A single malt from the Yoichi distillery, Nikka’s first distillery built in 1934. The founder Masataka Taketsuru chose Yoichi in Hokkaido because of the similar environmental conditions to Scotland, where he learned whisky making.

Producer’s Notes: Yoichi single malt has pleasant peaty notes and smokiness originating from the traditional direct coal-fired distillation as well as a briny hint delivered by the sea breeze during the aging process.


COLOR

Golden brown

AROMA

Full bodied, peaty with a nice smokiness

TASTE

Very smooth and mature.  Long and well balanced

THE BOTTOM LINE

I really enjoyed this single malt.  Very smooth.  Nice long finish.  A new classic whisky to add to your collection of single malts if you’re luck enough to find one.
