The Glenlivet 18 Year Single Malt 18 year old
The mix of casks – American and European oak, first and second fill – all play their parts to create this whisky, our single most awarded expression, and its unique character.
The European oak adds spicy notes and complexity and the first-fill American oak casks add the tropical fruitiness that makes it unmistakably The Glenlivet in style. Its golden hue bears testimony to its 18 years very well spent maturing.
