Glenlivet 12 is done. Fineto! 8 months from popping the bottle to finishing the bottle. Deja vu, fuck. I swear I wrote this before…eerie.
Some notes: Good summertime scotch, or something to give to guests/friends anytime of the year. Won’t hurt your wallet. But in the end, it ain’t anything you’ll remember much. Which is why these last few pours were thrown over the rocks and sipped in the sizzling heat.
This one comes in at the most popular, “first timer” and introductory scotch to those entering the gates of single malt land. But to be honest, I wouldn’t really want to give this to people just starting out, its a little dull, then again, its hard to go wrong with. Straight or over the rocks, its tasty. Shame the finish just isn’t anywhere in sight. It dies out like a flame in the wind.
With that said, if you want something fruitful, smooth and delicate for the summer months, you really can’t go wrong with Glenlivet 12.
