One of the most famous malts in the world, perhaps on account of the story of George Smith,an illegal distiller in Speyside who went legit when he obtained the first licence to legally distill whisky in 1824.
This 12 year old Glenlivet was distilled in 2007 and laid to rest in a single first-fill sherry butt. After just over a decade had passed, the single malt was bottled in February 2019 by Signatory for the Un-Chillfiltered Collection. You can't go wrong with a classic sherried Speysider.
Nose: Sticky cinnamon buns and lots of dried fruit, with plum compote and a hint of fresh grass.
Palate: An almost oily mouthfeel, with rich treacle, spiced dark chocolate, sultana, fresh red berries and barley sugar, with candied orange peel.
Finish: A spicy finish, with lots of warming oak and peppery spice lingering alongside dark red fruits.
