Glenlivet 18 Years Batch Reserve Single Malt Scotch 80
This excellent 18 year old single malt from Glenlivet is
a classic Speyside dram, it also won two golds at the International Wine and
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
Over the course of 18 years our Master Distiller, Alan
Winchester, takes this expression through a combination of cask types,
including both first and second-fill American oak (for tropical fruitiness) and
ex-sherry oak (for spicy complexity). The result of this deft navigation of the
distilling arts is a gorgeous single malt that is complex, yet elegant and
balanced. The 18 Year Old has won more awards than any other expression; every
bottle is a true example of the quality and taste of The Glenlivet. Any bottle
deserves pride of place in your cabinet… perhaps to be held back for a fitting
occasion? It is, after all, crafted to impress.
