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.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
The USA is buying half of the bottles from The Glenlivet Distillery, which are single malts.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
