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.
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.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in The Glenlivet 18 Year Old and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
