Balanced, rich and elegant, this is a whisky for special occasions
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.

This was a gift for my husband. This is his favorite scotch.
Great value play. Silky smooth and delicious.
Was expecting a bit more from 18 yrs..... somewhere the smoothness got lost, flavor is good but at this price point I would consider other 15 or 18 yr olds.
