Glenlivet 18 Years

18 long years of maturation and the addition of ex-sherry casks make this Glenlivet much more complex than the popular 12-year-old standard bottling. Despite its quality it's still much more affordable than a lot of other 18-year-old single malts.

I forgot to post my original tasting notes when I wrote them so I'm going off when I had this a couple of months ago.

Nosing: Apple Pineapple Vanilla Fruit Pepper Sherry
Fruity apple and pineapple, mixed fruit peel. Vanilla and peppery spice, light sherry aroma.

Taste: Apple Apple Mint Mint Oak
Very rich and creamy. Apple fruit and a touch of menthol. Slightly smoky oak.

Finish: Oak
Long and oaky, dry.

Comment:
I wish I'd written my full notes down when they were fresh in my head, but it was memorable enough to wonder where this bottle had disappeared to when I was looking at my collection list. Really enjoyed it. I remember the nose in particular was beautiful and the whole thing was very well put together.
