Glenlivet 25 YO XXV

Single Malt Whisky
43% Alcohol content


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.
