Description

Nose: Strong and versatile. Notes of chewy sultanas, Sherry-soaked peels, barley sugars, toasty grains, apple blossom, petals, fudge, and faint wisps of smoke. Many different foods pair well with the Glenlivet. It blends well with salmon, smoked fish, and pork thanks to its light flavour and gentle complexity. In 1824, a local farmer called George Smith founded one of the first legally licenced Speyside distilleries in the remote area of Glenlivet. There he began producing very high-standard Scotch whisky which far exceeded that of the remaining illicit distillers.

On the palate, Glenlivet 18 year old whisky’s flavour profile becomes even more nuanced and layered. Notes of tannic oak provide a pleasantly earthy base for notes of honeyed sweetness from Manuka honey and Cox’s apples. Walnuts add a subtle nutty layer while zesty orange peel brings a refreshing citrusy finish. Glenlivet 18 year old whisky is sweet but balanced with a dry, spicy oak finish that lingers on the tongue. The malt used in the 18-Year-Old is matured in a combination of European and American oak casks, creating a complexity of flavour that is not found in its younger counterpart.

Meanwhile Glenlivet’s 18 year old expression brings forth an equally inviting flavour profile that is equally as unique. On the nose Glenlivet reveals sweet sultanas, Sherried peels, barley sugars, toasty cereals and floral petals along with a hint of apple blossom; all further complemented by subtle notes of fudge coupled with delicate wisps of smoke! On the palate Glenlivet offers Manuka honey, walnut, Cox’s apples and orange peels; all rounded off with fragrant notes of spicy oak on the lingering finish. The Glenlivet 18 also boasts a luxuriously creamy texture that makes it ideal for sipping. Cask/Barrels: transferred to Oloroso sherry casks where it spent its final days, as the rest remained in bourbon casks

Oloroso sherry casks are also used to mature the Glenfiddich 18. If you’re already a fan of sherry-finished whiskies, you’ll appreciate the spiced fruity character from these Spanish staves. During ageing, the whisky develops nutty, fruity notes and a notably reddish colour. Palate: An extravagant and vivid flavour of winter spices lingers on the palate, with sweet hints of cinnamon and cloves combined with a dry oak sensation. The Glenlivet 18 year old whisky is a rich and full-bodied spirit with a well-balanced profile that combines the best of Glenlivet’s unique distillation process. On the nose, Glenlivet 18 year old whisky has strong, complex aromas of chewy sultanas, Sherry-soaked peels, barley sugars, toasty grains, and faint wisps of smokiness. In an attempt to coat-tail Smith’s quality whisky, and profit from his growing reputation, the illicit makers also began calling their spirits Glenlivet. Eventually in 1884, these sub-par replications led Smith to take these imitators to court where the Glenlivet Indenture was created.

The Duke of Gordon, landlord to the Glenlivet and wider Speyside region, was aware of the illicit distillation being performed on his extensive land. Instead of missing tax from these ‘moonshiners’ he levied a bill titled ‘The Excise Act’ of 1823, which therefore made alcohol distillation legal.

Glenfiddich 18 is a single malt Scotch whisky from the Glenfiddich Distillery, located in Dufftown, Scotland. It has a rich and intense nose of sherry, raisins and vanilla with a hint of butterscotch, as well as a sweet malty taste including honey, chocolate and spice. The finish is long-lasting and smooth, with oak notes providing an undercurrent to the other flavours. Glenlivet 18 year old whisky has been aged in a combination of American ex-bourbon cask and European ex-sherry cask made from American and European oak which impart additional complexity to the whisky. A smaller amount of Glenlivet is also placed in American-made ex-Sherry casks for extra flavour before being finished in new French Limousine oak from Dordogne for its final maturation stage. This careful aging process ensures that Glenlivet 18 year old whisky has achieved its perfect balance after spending at least 18 years in oak barrels before it is bottled and shipped to its final destination. Glenmorangie and Glenlivet are two of the most iconic whisky producers in the world, with a long history of producing high-quality spirits. Both distilleries have become synonymous with quality, craftsmanship and innovation over the years.
