Decipher the Scotch Secret.

The Glenlivet distillery lies in the valley of the Livet river (hence the name) in Speyside. It was opened in 1824 by George Smith, who was the first man to be granted a license to distill in UK - after he ran an illegal and highly successful business for years. The distillery remained a family business until the 1970s when it was bought by Seagrams and sold to Pernod Ricard in 2001. The Glenlivet's blood is the pure water from Josie's Well and its birthplace is one of the fourteen stills of various sizes. Even Charles Dickens was surprised how good the Scotch was, as he sipped on the "rare old Glenlivet" in the smoky town of London. The rest is history.

Now, after three clandestine releases (Alpha, Cipher and Code), the Scotch powerhouse released another mysterious expression called Enigma. It comes in an opaque black bottle with no information about the Spirit inside. Master Distiller Alan Winchester decided to give the hardcore Scotch-heads something challenging - and delicious. Does the corn aroma mean it was aged in barrels that used to hold Canadian Whisky? Maybe there's a whiff of Madeira. Or is it Cognac? To be frank, we wouldn't tell you more about this Whisky even if we knew. Become a Scotch sleuth and figure it out. Cheers!

Julie
Julie,
Very gentle on the nose; light, elegant, and fruity. A millisecond of soft, floral honey at first sip, but then it explodes with a sweet cinnamon bite that gently fades into a soft smokey finish. Like an incredible scotch roller coaster ride for your tongue.

Michael,
Easily the best Glenlivet I've ever had! Don't mistake it for the similar looking The Code. That one is garbage.

Keith,
An amazing smack of flavor in a heavy cask strength sample
 
Paul
Paul,
Great package, and a slight bite to it. I will try it with a drop of water or ice.
 
Colin
Colin,
This one is more smoky than a typical Glenlivet and has a little longer linger on the tongue. Good scotch but I prefer less smoke.
 
Sid
Sid,
At first taste (neat) - it had a bite that made it very "tough" on the palate. With the addition of one ice cube - the entire flavor profile changed. With that one addition - I would have to say that it has, definitely, become my new favorite.

Got this bottle to gift away. The recipient let me sample it and I was impressed. Great packaging, smooth flavor, and overall a great purchase. I may buy one for myself in the future. -LOOGA

Very smooth, really opens up with some drops of water or a cube of ice. Caramel notes at the beginning, then you get the cirtrus smell, after you get hit with pear and then the finishing note cream.

Bottled at 60.6%, this one really opens up with a couple drops of water. Good balance and great long finish.

Thomas,
Popped the cork and took a whiff of it. At first I had aroma of a sweet deep red wine. Maybe a sherry. First pour was strong and deep. Havent had a second yet. Will hold off because I know I'll want to keep sipping to find the hidden flavors.
