A malt whisky of unmistakable honey-rich maturity and depth. Glenlivet 18yo is the winner of two Gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and remains one of the best-value expressions of sherried Speyside.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Dark chocolate and glacé cherries, with apple and creamy vanilla-infused crême brûlée.

    Palate: Thick and fruit, with cream, stewed apple, candied orange and sweet vanilla.

    Finish: Dry, with lingering spice.

  • 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

  • TerraRob 15 April 2014

    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.

  • Scotch fan 11 February 2013

    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!

  • Sean Sankey 4 December 2012

    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

  • FoxHound 6 June 2012

    Glenlivet 18 is a pleasure to drink in every sense of the word, lovely light fruity aromas with a nice dash of vanilla on the aroma and on the palate and immensely smooth. goes down your throat like water. an absolutely terrific scotch that after being sampled, should only be broken out on special occasions. 9.5 out of 10 from me

  • alien 30 April 2012

    Very nice malt, with very nice price!!! Love it!!!

  • Scott J. Buccine, Sr. 14 April 2012

    Love, love, love it!!!

  • Jamie H 9 March 2012

    The greatest liquid that has ever passed my lips. Amazing stuff!!

  • Dave 7 February 2012

    A brilliant drop. I have a stable of GlenLivet's (12, 15, 18 and 21) and the 18 is the pick for me - even over the 21. I love the rich fruit flavours and smooth oaky finish. It is my go to drop. The worst thing about it is the bottom of the bottle...again.

  • Smedster 1 February 2012

    You could pay more for whisky of this quality - but why would you? Great stuff!!

  • Tudval 28 January 2012

    I's say MUCH richer and refined than the 15yo.

  • Unclebadger 1 January 2012

    Just a bit richer and smoother that the 15 yr, lovely smooth lingering finish

  • Rob Hughes 31 December 2011

    In my opinion this is one of the best value Single Malt's on the market, and never fails to impress. The nose is fabulous and fragrant, with dried fruit, light spice and a light citrus hint. It is beautifully light on the taste buds, unlike some sherried Speyside malts, and has real class. Goes beautifully with a nice mince pie!
