The Glenlivet 15-Year-Old pours a golden yellow, with a nose that is rich and oaked. There are notes of chewy resinous wood with well-balanced acidity. Fudge and Madeira with apple crumble with calvados. The palate is full and rich with winter spice; cinnamon and cloves, thick oak with developing aridity. The finish is long and dry with a peppery note. This expression was matured in French Limousin Oak casks, which is a popular choice for maturation of Cognac.
