This excellent 18 year old single malt from Glenlivet is a classic Speyside dram, it also won two golds at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. 

The rich palate of the 18 Year Old is the result of a combination of several different cask types.

    Such was the success of whisky from Glenlivet distillery by the 1880s that the name ‘Glenlivet' began to be adopted by other distillers to make it clear that their whisky came from the same area - riding on the coat-tails of success, if you will.

    John Gordon Smith, son of the founder George Smith, had to obtain a court order in 1884 stating that only his whisky could be called ‘The' Glenlivet. Anyone else was then required to hyphenate the name - e.g. Glenfarclas-Glenlivet, Tamdhu-Glenlivet, Macallan-Glenlivet, etc.

    Come the 1950s, nearly 30 distilleries were using the hyphenated form, some of them many miles from the Glenlivet itself - giving rise to it being called ‘the longest glen in Scotland'!

    Nose: Quite big and well-rounded. There are notes of chewy sultanas and Sherried peels, barley sugars and toasty cereals with petals and apple blossom. A touch of fudge and gentle wisps of smoke.

    Palate: Full and rich with notes of chewy, tannic oak. Manuka honey and walnut with Cox’s apples and orange peels. Cut herbs - fennel and spearmint.

    Finish: Long and dry with a spicy oak note.
