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 rich palate of The Glenlivet 18 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the result of a combination of several different cask types. The Glenlivet Master Distiller Alan Winchester has a wealth of quality casks to choose from when creating this complex expression, with American and European Oak, first and second fill, all playing their parts. European Oak imparts spicy hints and brings additional complexity. First-fill American Oak adds tropical fruitiness.
NOSE: Rich fruit aromas and toffee notes.
PALATE: Wonderfully balanced, with bursts of sweet oranges.
FINISH: Long with spice and moist raisin notes.
