Description of The Glenlivet 18 Year old

The Glenlivet 18 Year old (Rabigato, Viosinho and Verdelho)

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: This drink has the traditional golden whisky colouring.
  • Aroma: On the nose, fruit scents rise above all. Some of the most prominent fruity scents include apricot and orange. Sweet caramel and bitter almond scents play a part in this scent profile.
  • Taste: This Scotch is blessed with balanced flavours. Sweet citrus sparks meld beautifully with traditional oak spice flavours. The drink also has a long finish, with lingering tastes of spices and raisins.

PRODUCER: The Glenlivet distillery first opened in 1822 by George Smith. Smith opened the distillery in the Livet valley, as it is close to natural spring water, which he used in his whiskys. During the time the distillery opened, making whisky was illegal. It was later legalized a couple years later. It wasn't until the early 1900's that the whisky began being sold in the Americas. Today, it is sold all over the world.

COUNTRY: Scotland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Being a single-malt whisky, this drink is made in one single distillery and still. It is likely made of barely, as most Scotches are. This single-malt whisky goes through several stages throughout its 18-year ageing process. Firstly, it is aged in American oak barrels before being moved to ex-sherry oak casks. This helps to add the raisin-like and oak spices.

ALCOHOL: 40%
