The Glenlivet 18 Year Old offers up an intensity that leaves you giving a little groan of pleasure. It displays an old gold apricot colour. To the nose, it exudes aromas of rich fruit and toffee. To the palate, it is balanced with bursts of sweet orange and finishes long with raisins and spice.

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 Glenlivet 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.
