Mature, honey-rich, velvet!
A colour of golden amber and a rich nose with sweet and floral layers. The taste is honey-rich and toffeed on the palate with nutty, spicy overtones. The finish is of exceptional length in flavour.
After more than 18 years in selected casks it becomes a malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Small wonder then that ‘The’ Glenlivet 18 year old is the winner of 2 gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition (I.W.S.C.) – the premier competition of it’s kind in the world.
Comparing it to one of Scotland’s greatest living actors The Malt Advocate calls The Glenlivet 18 Year Old “mature, rich and sexy”.
Old gold with apricot hues and rich fruit aromas and toffee notes on nose
Wonderfully balanced with bursts of sweet oranges, long with spice and moist raisin notes on finish
2015 Silver Outstanding Medal Winner – International Wine and Spirits Competition
IWSC Awards Tasting Note: Considering the age it appears somewhat youthful on the nose while still being complex. A light drift of smoke and then some serious vanilla. Fine entry and smooth flow across the palate
