First Look: "Bright gold in color with a touch of dark honey."
Nose: "Malted barley, honey, ultra-light peat, sweet caramel, oak, dried apricot, and dark fruit."
The malted barley hits first and is followed by rich honey and sweet caramel. The complexity ramps up with notes of dried apricot, very light peat, dark fruit, and oak.
Palate: 'Sweet sherried fruit, marshmallow, barley, dried black currant, oak, rich caramel, and baking spice."
The rich and complex entry showcases sweet sherried fruit intertwined with barley, black currant, and baking spice. Secondary flavors of marshmallow, oak, caramel and dried currant bring layers of flavor to the intense palate.
Finish: The finish is simultaneously long, sweet, dry and extremely complex.
Fair Trade: $85
Verdict: The Glenlivet 18-Year-Old is a classic and not to be missed. Glenlivet has been around since 1824 and the quality in this bottle showcases the attention to detail and quality that stand the test of time.
