  • Excerpt: Feels hotter than its 80 proof. Extremely woody — the flavor is more akin to chewing on twigs than any kind of toffee- or vanilla-style notes you typically get from wood. Just doesn’t gel for me.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to money and taste the Glenlivet 15 is the best value in their core line up because even though I do like the 18 more, I’m not sure I like it $30+ more.

  • Nose:

    Sweet apple, vanilla, some clove, buttercream

  • Taste:

    Thin but pleasant and sweet. No heat. Apples, vanilla, some pear, a little clove and spice. Cream.

  • Finish:

    Short but mild. No heat or astringency. Kind of like a weak apple juice here with some faint cream.

  • Overall:

    Its fine for what it is - simple, easy, daily sipper and priced just about right. Rank 5.

    5
