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.

A very balanced scotch. Think its the best from Glenlivet. That declares why the price is more higher than 10 years ago.

Excellent Scotch. Nothing too heavy. Well balanced. Not too sweet or smoky or harsh.
 
Brittany
Brittany,
Sweet like fruitcake. Allspice an dried fruit. On ice or neat, both are good.

Could be slightly smoother up front, but otherwise a near perfect Scotch.

It's a little strong for my personal taste; however, those who drink scotch do love this one. We keep it on hand for guests.

This is the bottle I celebrated my wedding with.

Edgar,
My favorite whiskey of all time. The 18 is superior to any other whiskey that may be older or more expensive. The spices, fruits and smokiness combined do wonders for my palette and soul. If I was stranded on an island and all I had to survive on was this whiskey, I would willingly die of starvation. I would go down happy and laughing!

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...

William
William,
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.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Even better than Glenlivet 12. Super smooth with a long finish.

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