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%

The Glenlivet Distillery

The Glenlivet 18 Years

4 /5

Pour cette référence âgée, le Maître de chais Alan Winchester a sélectionné des fûts de chêne américain et européen de premier et second remplissage, qui apportent chacun des notes particulières. Les fûts de chêne américain de premier remplissage chargent The Glenlivet 18 ans en notes florales et fruitées, tandis que le chêne européen amène une touche épicée et de la complexité.

The Glenlivet 18 Years

4 /5

Glenlivet Alter: 18 Jahre Inhalt: 0,7 Liter 43% vol. Mit Farbstoff Aroma: Leicht torfig, elegant und komplex, Eicheholz Geschmack: nussig, malzig, blumig und süss, Eichenholz, Passionsfrucht Nachklang: Eiche und Ingwer, lang anhaltend, entfernter Rauch, trocken, herb Informationen Im Jahre 1823 wurde die Destille von George Smith als erste legale Destille gegründet. Die Namensrechte (The Glenlivet) wurden im Jahre 1880 geschützt. 1977 wurde die Destille an den US-Konzern Seagram verkauft. 2001 dann kaufte Pernod Ricard The Glenlivet auf. Für die Abfüllungen von Glenlivet werden Fässer aus amerikanischer Eiche verwendet in denen zuvor Bourbon oder Sherry gelagert wurde. Für den Charakter eines Whiskies ist auch die Form der Brennblasen von Bedeutung. Der Gründer von Glenlivet erfand die Brennblase in Form einer Laterne. Bis heute werden diese für den Brennvorgang verwendet. Meist wird der Whisky im Alter von 12- und 18 Jahren abgefüllt, seltener mit 21 Jahren. Unabhängige Abfüller wie Gordon & MacPhail bringen in mehr oder weniger regelmässigen Abständen eigene Abfüllungen von sehr guter Qualität heraus.

4 /5

The Glenlivet est un whisky SINGLE MALT, c'est-à-dire issu d'une seule distillerie. Il tire sa subtilité et son élégance des effets conjugués du climat et du terroir du Speyside ainsi que du savoir-faire unique du Maitre Distillateur Alan Winchester.
