The Glenlivet 18 Bottling Note: This excellent 18 year old single malt from Glenlivet is a classic Speyside dram, it also won two golds at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
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.
