THE GLENLIVET 15 YEARS OLD
THE GLENLIVET 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve
THE GLENLIVET 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve. The 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation. It is in a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. In fact,The Glenlivet were one of the first to use French oak for making whisky, a technique that has since been imitated the world over. The Limousin oak is cut in France’s Dordogne region, where it’s often used to mature cognacs. Its low density allows whisky to sink deep into the wood, and The Glenlivet carefully control how long the whisky matures in the casks so The Glenlivet 15 not too overpower the desired result. The result is a unique and pleasing spiciness.
