The Glenlivet is the single malt that started it all. It is the oldest legal distillery in the parish of Glenlivet, Speyside Scotland. It was founded in 1824 and has operated almost continuously since.
The delicate and complex character of the The Glenlivet 12 Year Double Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery. This expression is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American and European Oak. Maturation in American oak imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness. The mineral rich water from Josie’s Well ensures the best possible results during mashing and fermenting to form the flavors that define this expression.
NOSE: Perfectly balanced fruity aroma with delicate floral fragrance and vanilla,honey sweetness.
PALATE: Classically Speyside, a soft smooth balance of sweet summer fruits and the floral fragrance of spring flowers.
