Glenlivet is one of those distilleries whose malts just keep improving with age. This superb 21-year is an elegant, intricate, sophisticated malt, presented in a very smart wooden box.
Glenlivet Code is one of a string of releases from Glenlivet that are designed to encourage drinkers to experience the flavour and smells of the whisky without any presumption – as the range have no tasting notes or cask details so you really must use the senses and enjoy. This lovely dram is at 48% ABV, but we won’t spoil the experience with any tasting notes of our own – give it a try – what do you sense?
Launched in 2016 as the third expression in Glenlivet’s Nàdurra range, this has been finished in casks which used to hold peated whisky. Inspired by the original whisky from the distillery in the 19th century, which was peated, this has notes of vanilla, cream, and subtle smoke.
The Glenlivet 18 Year Old is the perfect expression of age and elegance – balancing the archetypal ripe fruit notes of The Glenlivet with a drier evocative oak influence. The perfect after-dinner dram. Elegant, complex, oak and fruit. An enticing bitter/sweet symphony.
