At The Glenlivet, when they talk about Whisky, it's clear that age matters. Age is important as 60% to 80% of the flavour comes from ageing in cask. This is why, at The Glenlivet, only the very finest casks are utilized. Selective maturation in new French Limousin oak casks creates a characterful and unique expression of The Glenlivet. The rich, spicy notes of French oak interplay with the fruit and floral notes of The Glenlivet. A delicious whisky to savour. Creamy, rich, smooth oakiness, a sweet tooth character with a refreshing nutty style.
Deep gold, with intense late afternoon summer sunshine shades. Creamy and rich. Resinous fragrances swirl up before melting into a citrus fruit salad bowl. Orange peel and candied grapefruit aromas. Then, the bouquet opens on buttery notes. Shortbread, almond brandy snaps, vanilla toffee, fudge sauce. A dry spicy echo with a touch of liquorice resonates in the back. Round, sweet, incredibly smooth and velvety. Wood is entirely integrated but present all the way, sweetly enveloping fruity and nutty flavours in an oaky shell. Luscious chocolate fudge lingers on. Lingering with traces of toasted hazelnuts and lightly smoked almonds
