The opening salvo of the Glenlivet range, named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith. It's classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Very clean and fresh, with notes of grass, freshly cut apples and pear drops, enriched by a rich toffee character. Slight floral note, with menthol and custard-tart notes.

    • Palate

      The gentle fruitiness continues on to the palate, with pear the dominant note, accompanied by a refreshing mintiness. Very soft texture and mouthfeel with no rough edges. Easy to drink.

    • Finish

      Soft, fruity and whistle-clean.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Colour

      Pale gold.

    • Nose

      Delicate aromas of citrus fruit, notably sweet orange.

    • Palate

      Sweet, fruit notes of zesty oranges and pears, with a hint of candy, toffee apples. Well-balanced and exceptionally smooth.

    • Finish

      Long, creamy and smooth.

    Surprisingly smooth and rich.

    Definitely not as nice as the 12-year-old variety. There's an alcohol harshness I'm not used to in Glenlivet, so I would not recommended it neat.

    It smells and tastes like toffeed-pears, a combination which I'd never even thought of in dessert but which works so well!

    Enjoying this Scotch after a long day of working around our home. My wife cooked a great dinner and we are now relaxing. Very smooth feel in my mouth and I like the slight hint of caramel in the taste. One of my favorites for a casual evening.

    Real whiskey drinkers will know its worth. Excellent aroma, taste and after finish. If you think this is bitter you should see an ENT specialist.
