Distillery

The Glenlivet was founded in 1824 and it has operated almost continuously since. The distillery draws water from Josie's Well and other springs a short distance from the distillery. The barley comes from Crisp Maltings, Portgordon. Lastly, Glenlivet's stills are lantern shaped with long, narrow necks, all of which helps to produce a light tasting spirit. Spirit from the distillery is then matured in oak casks formerly used to mature bourbon (ex-bourbon), as is normal throughout the industry, with some products being finished in casks previously used to store sherry and port.

 

House Style: Flowery, fruity, peachy.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Elements beautifully combined. Deep flowery aromas, a very light touch of fresh peatiness. Some sweetness, and a hint of sherryish oak. Lightly appetizing.

 

Palate: Firm. Smooth.

 

Finish: Flowery and sweet at first, then developing peach-stone nuttiness.

 

Comment: Dry, appetizing. Very long with an interplay of sweet and bitter flavors.
