The Glenlivet 18 Year Old
A is the perfect expression of age and elegance balancing the archetypal ripe fruit notes of The Glenlivet with a drier evocative oak influence. The perfect after-dinner dram.
A malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Glenlivet 18 Year is the winner of two Gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and remains one of the best-value expressions of sherried Speyside.
Nose: Hint of plum, but otherwise little sherry influence. Some vanilla, but not much wood. Where’s the green apple?
Palate: Nice thick body. Creamy, not oily. Golden raisins, fresh green figs, sugar cookies.
Finish: Not as smooth as I’d have thought for this age. Vanilla again, and some small amount of bitterness. Anise.
