Gordon and MacPhail Series Post 3 of 6: Glenlivet 15 year-old

We are just two days away from holiday! I am almost done with my shopping list and I am definitely looking forward to spending time with family, but also, having a few days away from work.

Today I am going to post my third post on my Gordon & MacPhail (G&M) whisky series. The first post in the series was Gordon & MacPhail Series Post 1 of 6: Scapa 10 year-old and the second post was Gordon & MacPhail Series Post 2 of 6: Benromach 10 year-old. You can click on the link to read those posts and get more information about G&M.

Out of all the Glenlivet’s I’ve tried before, my favorite has been the Glenlivet 21 year-old Archive. This third post in the series is G&M Glenlivet 15 year-old and spoiler alert, I didn’t very much care for it. Do note that I did hear some oohs and aahs in the room from some people who apparently really enjoyed it, but out of the six G&M whisky tastings we tasted that evening, this was absolutely my least favorite in the lot.

Tasting Notes

Nose: wood and citrus

Palate: light, oak and slightly sweet with citrus notes

Finish: light finish with a slight burn

The cost for this bottle is about $89.99, or at least this is how it was priced there at the tasting. What was neat about the bottle is the fact that G&M produces these under its vintage label. If you are a fan of Glenlivet then I am certain you will enjoy it.


Note: The contents on my blog are solely my opinion. To me every palate is different! Although I may or may not like a product, I always recommend for people to try it and make up their own minds.
