Glenlivet is such an iconic brand. I try to always have a bottle on my barcart. Whenever I have company, people seem to love it. I don’t love dark liquor but this is good. Can’t go wrong with a nice scotch whisky. I recommend this!

The best scotch in town for the price. I wouldn't buy any other brands besides this one. Its very smooth with a slight smokeness to it. Hands down the best bang for your buck! Thanks Glenlivet company for putting out an excellent scotch! CHEERS!

Well, Breakfast at Tiffany's made this a cult classic. Mid priced and amazing taste. I bought it at Specs Liquor and wherever I can. It is so vv classy and stands out. It's a special occasion drink for me and oh yes I am satisfied.

I love my whiskey sours, one of the only drinks I will have when I go out because I'm not a huge fan of really sweet drinks. I decided to try this scotch on a whim because I did not want the harshness of Jack Daniels. I couldn't have made a better decision! This is the smoothst, silkiest scotch I've ever had (and more expensive) but this complimented my drink so well I'm contemplating keeping a bottle of this in my home just to have on the rocks (which I never have straight). I had the Glenlivet 12 and glad to say I won't go back to another whiskey for a long time.

This is a great place to start exploring single malts. The 12 and the 15 are not at all the same whiskey, but both are affordable. The 15 is a bit woody with a hint of spice and a good step up, but I actually prefer the 12. Neither is incredibly smoky and both have a couple of layers of complexity to get you started in the word of Scotch.

This is a nice entry-level single malt. Being a 12-year-old, it's affordable for the novice Scotch drinker, since price increases astronomically with age. Glenlivet 12 is a Speyside Scotch, so it isn't as peaty as Islays. I would say it's on the sweeter side of Speysides, which again makes it a good Scotch for entry-level tasters.

This is something I buy my boyfriend on special occasions because it is expensive but he loves it and it makes a great gift. I'm not a big scotch fan, but I was surprised to find how smooth this was after tasting

So delicious. Tried this at a speakeasy bar once and although it is a bit more than your average scotch, it's so worth it. I'm obsessed with it, have a bottle at home for a night cap after a long day. Must try.

I buy this every year for my father and he loves it. They come in nice, decorative boxes and make a great gift to give others. He says that the flavor is nice and smooth and he will go through one bottle a year.

This is one is the best Scotch Whiskey's available. The smoky smell and flavor is delicious from the time I pour it in my snifter to when it touches my lips. To me I enjoy it neat, but it's also good in a whiskey sour.

What do you like about this? Is it super strong? What do you mix it with? How many shots straight of this till you're nice and tipsy? Cause any hangovers? What whiskey do you prefer other than this?
