The Glenlivet has always resinated as one of the world’s smoothest and flavoursome single malts. This expression is no different. It has been maturing in first fill and second fill American oak ex-bourbon barrels and European oak ex-Sherry barrels for no less than 18 years.
The American oak (ex-bourbon) barrels give The Glenlivet its tropical fruity flavours and the European oak (ex-sherry) barrels give the spicy complexity we have all grown to love.
Jim Murray says ‘It offers up an intensity that leaves you giving a little groan of pleasure’.
The Glenlivet 18 Years Old has won more awards than any other expression, it is a true example of what this distillery can create with time and patience.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: The aroma is robust with rich stewed fruits of apples, oranges, raisins and plums. There’s a subtle dose of sherry which combines with oak and honey sweetness. Vanilla toffee creeps through and enhances the rich maltiness of this single malt.
Palate: There’s plenty of oak on the taste buds, tropical fruits and sweet vanilla caramel. Baked apples and more stewed oranges and raisins. The spice fills the mouth as this whisky leads to a dramatic finish.
Finish: More vanilla caramel mixes with ginger, cinnamon and liquorice. Long and clean with toasted oak.
