What's in a name? The Glenlivet 18 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Glenlivet 18 Year Old whiskey, rather than 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. The finish is long and dry with a spicy oak note.
Tried this after knowing the 12yo. It is a beauty indeed, balanced and aromatic. Worths every penny.
Love it,great long honey taste,wonderful fudge and vanilla smells.extremely enjoyable whisky
amazing to drink this whiskey....
its a pleasure
Best single malt out there
Good smell aromatic and smoothness in drinking till 2pegs after that no hangover
Noble flowery-lacquer aroma, moderate spirit with malty and - a little bit - fruity notes, restrained aftertaste with a soft wood. Delicate enough and calming.
This is the best whisky i ever had, its worth every penny. I enjoy this on sundays as well. no hangover at all.
Given that I'm a fan of the Glenlivet, I was really looking forward to this, but I was somewhat disappointed. It's by no means bad, just a bit one-dimensional. Sweet, with lots of apple flavours on the nose and palate, but to be perfectly honest I prefer the 12 and its greater vibrancy.
I enjoyed the flavour. The best whiskey i have tested so far
I dont know if my bottling was bad or if this one just isn't for me.. Reminds me very much of the Glenfiddich Rich oak but much sharper oak/fruit in the nose and taste.. Don't find it pleasant at all :( Love the Glenfiddich 14yo rich oak doe
better than blue labe
this is as smooth as it gets, no hangover, well priced...if you want to party like a rock star and keep going.....this is it...
Absolute Liquid Gold.... Highly recommended to any scotch drinker out there. if you dont like this then your way too hard to please. =P
Not only is this a truly excellent whisky, but it's pretty damned cheap too...
This is the best whisky on the market in my book. Smooth as silk with awesome flavor. I have a hard time keeping it in my cabinet because it seems to "disappear" quickly. I nearyly choked my brother-in law when I found he'd poured himself a large "bucket" of Scotch & Soda using my last bottle of 18 year old....bottle is now hidden in the closet!
This is truly great Whisky! Smooth as silk and well rounded
So far this one is my favorite
Smoothest scotch ever tasted..
It is by far my favourite scotch whisky but I can't believe how cheap it is in America. I am from Australia and here it costs 105 dollars a bottle and when I saw the price of 59 dollars here I was shocked.
I've only been drinking scotch in a serious manner in the last few years, and I have been sampling many brands and years to find exactly what I like. Before, I had set on Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or as what I keep in my cabinet, but after trying the Glenlivet 18, I haven't bought another bottle since. Very smooth and great finish. Goes absolutely great with a cigar or pipe, if that is your thing (I smoke a pipe on occasion). Would recommend to anyone I know who likes scotch or even the newbie who should try good scotch without being turned off to it by drinking bad! = )
Beautiful and strong aroma, amazing flavour and extremely smooth. Will be buying this one again :-)
