Can you unlock the Glenlivet Code?

After Alpha and Cipher, here comes another potable enigma for you to decode. It comes in an opaque and mysterious black bottle. It tells you no age, no cask type, and no tasting notes. And you know what that means... This bottle shall separate the true experts from imposters.

Here's how it works: You need a bottle of Glenlivet Code and a Shazaam app. After you scan the code, a hologram of Alan Winchester, the Glenlivet master distiller, appears. He challenges you to test your senses and knowledge and see how well your tasting notes match those of Winchester. Now, Glenlivet Code follows the traditional "smooth and fruity" style, but there are some twists and turns that will derail many self-proclaimed experts.

After you pour yourself a glass of the amber Spirit, the codebreaking artificial intelligence will ask you to define its manifold aromas and flavors. Then it will score you ruthlessly and put you on a leaderboard. There can only be one (or more) master distiller. Don’t worry, though. They’ll tell us the right answer sometime in the future.

What Winchester did reveal is Glenlivet created a unique and new Whisky, using new casks and techniques to redefine what Whiskies are.

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.
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.
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).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
