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.

Nosing: Apple Pineapple Raisin Vanilla Sherry Pepper
Immediately fruity, apple and pineapple. Some mixed fruit peels with a background sherry note . Raisins and vanilla and just a hint of pepper. It has a confectionery sweetness that reminds me of powdered sherbert sweets.

Taste: Apple Fruit Oak Spices Sweet
Rich and creamy, apple and slight menthol. Spicy oakiness and a slight smokiness. It has a pleasing tartness which balances the sweetness creamy mouth feel.

Finish: Oak Fruit Spices
Long and fruity with bags of spicy oak.

Comment:
This isn't my favourite type of malt, but its definitely interesting and enjoyable. The nose is complex and fruity while the flavour is punchy and bold. I'd certainly recommend trying it, at the price its a bargain.

Nosing: Spices Oak Caramel Dried Fruit Peat Smoke

Taste: Malt Nuts Oak Spices

Finish: Long

Comment: A very smooth balanced scotch with a welcomed bite of nuts and spices. Charred oak and malt carry a delicious sense of sweet citrus fruit and mild sherry. Great mouth feel, slightly dry and minor medicinal notes. One of my favourites!!
