Top reviews for The Glenlivet 18 Year Old:

— My favorite ultra smooth scotch. Limited smoke and wood flavor.

— very smooth and gentle, truly a taste experience unlike any other

— 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!

Sweet like fruitcake. Allspice an dried fruit. On ice or neat, both are good.

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.

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

Light sweetness, pine, slight honey. Dry with a hint of fresh tobacco.

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