Created by master distiller Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet 18 single malt whisky is aged for 18 years. Its flavour profile is contributed by a very particular selection of ageing barrels. The first and second fill, American oak casks, add hints of tropical fruits, while former sherry casks contribute a spiciness that gives the whisky an intriguing complexity.The Glenlivet is among the oldest and most loved Scotch whisky distillers. The brand ignited the revered Speyside scotches, which are known for their elegance and rich taste. The Glenlivet Distillery was the first legal distillery in the small Speyside region of northeastern Scotland, where many fine scotches are produced today. This brand set the standard for single malt whisky from the area.The aroma offers a rich introduction of toffee, and a creaminess often likened to crême brûlée. With a medium body, the palate offers notes of sweet orange peel and vanilla, with undertones of burnt caramel. The finish is pleasantly long with a nice oakiness and winter spices. The 18 Year Old has won more awards than any other expression; every bottle is a true example of the quality and taste of The Glenlivet whether enjoyed neat or as a whisky cocktail. Any bottle deserves pride of place in your cabinet… perhaps to be held back for a fitting occasion? It is, after all, crafted to impress.
