One thought on “The Glenlivet 12 Year

  1. Terrible drink and after bearing with it for a few weeks, gave the bottle away to a friend who really enjoyed it.

    Make sure you like it before buying or you may find yourself like me, giving it away.

    For about the same money I preferred Black Grouse, Grangestone 12 and Speyburn 10.
