Smooth & Welcoming
This whisky has been called a lot of things in its time: smooth, fruity, complex, sophisticated, entertaining, classic. The Original Malt Whisky Almanac says: “A first-class malt. One of the most popular malts in the world – deservedly so.”
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old’s legendary smooth character and tropical fruity notes come from spending quality time in a mix of American oak casks, which have been seasoned with Bourbon, and European oak.
Whilst a selection of different oak casks enhances the whisky’s flavor, the origins of it lies in the mineral-rich spring water drawn from Josie’s Well, our unique water source.
