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.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
