Glenlivet Tasting Notes |
After more than 18 years in selected casks it becomes a malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Colour: Golden amber. Nose: Rich, with sweet and floral layers. Taste: Honey-rich and toffeed on the palate with nutty, spicy overtones. Finish: Exceptional length of flavour.

Lovely, expansive bouquet includes scents of malted barley, baking spice, hearty spirit, toasted marshmallow, honeysuckle, fresh honey and dried citrus peel. Palate entry is firmly structured, moderately grainy sweet and features integrated flavors of honey wheat toast, dried apricot and wood resin; midpalate is slightly sweet, keenly resiny, grainy, toffee-like and tight. Finishes lean, crisp and dry.
