The end of smugglers, find it on the bottom-right of our flavor map. 

In 1824, George Smith made a daring move and got a license to legally produce single malt Whisky. Needless to say the neighbouring smugglers weren’t all too happy about it, so for protection he had to carry not one, but two guns at all times. Imagine that. 
 
The Glenlivet 18 year old is distilled in the 'Livet' district, Speyside, twice in copper stills and then aged in several different oak casks, with American and European Oak, first and second fill, all playing their parts. European Oak imparts spicy hints and brings additional complexity, while first-fill American Oak adds tropical fruitiness. No peat is used during the drying process so the barley’s natural flavors and aromas are well retained. 
 
Smartass Corner
1) In the past Glenlivet was used to name the 'terroir' in the Speyside region. So it's possible to find bottles of Macallan-Glenlivet, Balvenie-Glenlivet, etc.
 
2) Glenlivet stills are lantern shaped with long, narrow necks, all of which helps produce a light tasting spirit.

Expensive for a 18 year old but tastes fantastic!!! A dram to be savoured. I am sure if this was cask strength the taste would have been a couple of notches up...

It was sweet and soft to the taste and when I added a drop of water or two the taste was stronger. I got a taste of liquorice.
Shana
Shana,
Think 12-year old Glenlivet completely matured - an unforgettable, must-return time and again, perfectly nuanced Speyside single malt scotch. It's complex flavor spirals of dried berries, subtle peat, floral herbs, smokey spice and more, leisurely unfold in the palette and follow with an equally engaging and exquisitely satisfying finish. And the nose of amaretto with herbal hints throughout the entire tasting journey leave nothing left, but total satisfaction.

Very very smooth, with a lot of flavor on the backend. This will be an addition to my bar.

Overrated whisky, despite the 18 years tag line. Was not smooth enough in finish and lacked the flavors to create a memorable drinking experience.
