Selective maturation in new Limousin oak casks, usually reserved for wine, has added delicate overtones of the spices highly prized in fine wines, while complementing the elegance of the single malt.
Don’t dilute this light, gentle Scotch too much. Enjoy the honeyed, fresh tropical fruit aromas and mouthwatering vanilla and almond flavors with a hint of smoke and spice on the finish. Light body. Good value.— K.N.

The pursuit of perfection inherent to the history of the brand is reflected in the consistent quality of the whisky itself. It is a taste that has stood the test of time, demonstrated by the fact that The Glenlivet has won either a trophy or gold medal every year for the last five years in major competitions. Most recently, The Glenlivet 18 Year Old scooped a trophy and gold medal at the 2006 ISC awards and gold medals were awarded for the 12 Year Old and 21 Year Old at the 2006 IWSC awards.
