Glenlivet Scotch 18 Yr. 86

Glenlivet Scotch 18 Yr. 86 750ml       
Sku: 4589

The rich palate of the 18 Year Old is the result of a combination of several different cask types. The Glenlivet Master Distiller Alan Winchester has a wealth of quality casks to choose from when creating this complex expression, with American and European Oak, first and second fill, all playing their parts. European Oak imparts spicy hints and brings additional complexity. First-fill American Oak adds tropical fruitiness.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points (Apr 2014)
Notes of spiced apples and oranges mix with grassy aromas on the intricately layered nose. The flavors are elegant and delicate in the mouth offering floral tones, light caramel and coffee and a touch of smoke throughout. Incredibly smooth and round, silken.
 Wine Enthusiast 93 points (Dec 2011)
Vibrant orange-amber color and a warm, citrusy scent. Expect lots of honey and caramel from the get-go, winding into an interestingly dry and lingering finish entwining leather, cocoa, coconut and ginger. Good value. K.N.
