The Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve
Deep and intense gold color. Creamy and rich aromas with buttery notes. Fruity, nutty flavors with a lingering trace of sweet almonds and hints of spice.
The 15 Year Old's distinctive character is the result of selective maturation; a proportion of the spirit is matured in a selection of French Oak casks for a limited period, so as not to overpower the final result. The Glenlivet was one of the first distilleries to use French Oak in the whisky making process, a technique that has since been imitated by many others. Limousin Oak, which is cut in the Dordogne region of France, is often used to mature fine wines and cognacs.
