Glenlivet 18 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Dark chocolate, glacé cherries, rich fruit, cream and biscuits. Suggestions of cherry blossom and crème brûlée, the latter marrying the cream, dark notes, biscuity vanilla and sugary sweetness together nicely.
Palate: Thick, with lots of cream running on to sweet cherry, stewed apple and orange peel. Water brings out more sweet vanilla from the creaminess.
Finish: Dry, with sharp oak and spice.
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Rich, plush aromas of malt, biscuits and toffee.
Palate: The rich toffee and malt continues on to the palate, with toasty, spicy oak balancing things out. Well-made dram, with everything in proportion.
Finish: Sweet spice and toasty oak, with a malty backbone that persists.

Terrific scotch for this price point. Lovely honey sweet notes on opening followed by a spicy, citrus and chocolate. It doesn''t last long enough on the way down the throat but excellent none the less. Just a bit too sweet for my liking.
Simply put - THE BEST Speyside Single Malt I''ve ever tasted! Very smooth and very sweet. Zero peat. Perfect. Great value for money too - you won''t just be buying the one.
This is by far one of the best value for money 18yr old scotches. Tastes like the 15yr old glenlivet but with more OOMPH dark chocolate stewed fruit flavours. due to its 43% bottling (nice). The tasting notes are spot on, very good whisky. However, one thing to note is that this whisky is peatless, literally 0 peat or smoke. Overall, Good dram, and good value for money. Ideal for people that dosen''t like peat.
When it hits the palate the overwhelming taste of milk chocolate explodes! unfortunately the flavours fade quickly and over all i was not overly impressed with anything lasting, oak and nutty, but quickly fades, not worth the price or the hype in a scotch that is aged 18 years.
My new favourite whisky
One of my absolute favourites. With a depth of flavour i have rarely come across. A beautiful dram that goes down far too easy. At this price it is an absolute must.
Fruity and smooth. Toffee, butterscotch, mint. Incredibly well-balanced whisky as there is no individual flavor overpowering the whisky. Possibly the best choice in the entire range of Glenlivet. A must dram for all scotch fans. Great value for the money too!
It certainly is beautiful stuff this, which you never get tired of. Ok it's not got the phenols of Islay or the massive sherry of some other speysides but what it does have is gorgeous flavours around chocolate, fruit cake, berries and oak. Stunning nose, v sweet without being sickly. Lovely complexity all the way through and a long finish. Oh for heavens sake just buy one...
A supreme dram!! An 18 yr old of such class and colour for so little money! Makes me go Aisha Maisha!!! Maish from London
