The Glenlivet Scotch Single Malt 18 Year

The Glenlivet Scotch Single Malt 18 Year

750ML        
Sku: 010372

The rich palate of the 18 Year Old 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.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Mar 2013)
Gold amber hue. A seductive nose revealing smoke, dried pineapple and ginger aromas. Sweet sherry flavors weave in and out of the palate, with dried tropical fruit character and a nice amount of peat. The finish is dry, with perceptible oak tannins. A treat to the senses.
Vibrant orange-amber color and a warm, citrusy scent. Expect lots of honey and caramel from the get-go, winding into an interestingly dry and lingering finish entwining leather, cocoa, coconut and ginger. Good value. K.N.
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Finalist. Assertive aromas include brown sugar, nougat and dried violets; long, deep flavors feature dried berries, cinnamon and marshmallow.
