Tasting Notes
The nose is quite big and well-rounded. There are notes of chewy sultanas and sherried peels, barley sugars and toasty cereals with petals and apple blossom. A touch of fudge and gentle wisps of smoke. The palate is full and rich with notes of chewy, tannic oak. Manuka honey and walnut with Cox’s apples and orange peels. Cut herbs; fennel and spearmint. The finish is long and dry with a spicy oak note.

General Info
The wild and remote setting of Glenlivet has been the home of the single malt that inspired a region. From this beautiful glen comes the raw elements of rich mineral Spring waters of Josie’s Well, crisp fresh mountain air and an uncompromising terrain that combined create the foundation of a whisky of infinite elegance. Over two hundred years ago, whisky was closely bound up in the lives of every family in the glen of the Livet. It was local farmer George Smith who was renowned for his fine ‘illicit’ whisky, in 1824 seized upon the opportunity to obtain the first license to produce whisky ‘legally’ in the parish of Glenlivet. He knew exactly where to build his new distillery and went on to produce a spirit that would define the Speyside style of whisky which became the heartland of Scotch malt whisky production. The pioneering spirit, inspired by George Smith, runs through the history of The Glenlivet and is just as prevalent today. The Glenlivet is in the heartland of malt whisky country and a visit to this grand distillery will take you on a fascinating journey to the source of one of the greatest names in Scotch whisky. The nose is quite big and well-rounded. There are notes of chewy sultanas and sherried peels, barley sugars and toasty cereals with petals and apple blossom. A touch of fudge and gentle wisps of smoke. The palate is full and rich with notes of chewy, tannic oak. Manuka honey and walnut with Cox’s apples and orange peels. Cut herbs; fennel and spearmint.
