Glenlivet 15 Years Single Malt Whisky
The Glenlivet 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation. In which a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. A cut above the standard-issue 12 years, this 15 year old expression from The Glenlivet, was matured in French Limousin Oak casks (the same kind that is used for many Cognacs). Limousin Oak is a popular choice for maturation of Cognac. Expect rich notes of fruit, almonds and sweet spice.
