Color: Deep bronze gold
Nose: Deep flowery aromas; light, fresh peatiness; a hint of sherrish oak; appetizing
Body: Firm but smooth
Palate: Flowery and sweet at first, then developing a peach-stone nuttiness
Finish: Lightly dry, appetizing; a very long interplay of sweet and bitter flavors
First Tasted: March 2005
I was fortunate to have spent several years in Inverness, part of heartland of the Speyside whisky producers.
If you plan to visit the area, stay in Inverness or Elgin which are close to the distilleries including The Glenlivet one.
The 18 yr is lovely amber almost deep gold in colour, with a light peaty aroma, it has a sweet taste at first giving way to a nutty flavour. An 18 yr old, is ideal on cold winter evening maybe with a guest or two with a nice cigar!
This is my second favorite scotch. So, so smooth.
One of my favorite scotch’s. A very clean, delightful taste with a nice, warm finish.
