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.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does The Glenlivet Code taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in The Glenlivet Code 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.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Bottles from 1970s and 1980s having the Glenlivet name on them, are not always from The Glenlivet Distillery, it could possibly only be referring to the area.
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.
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.
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.
