Product Description

The Glenlivet®. George Smith's Original 1824 Pure Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Aged 12 years. Aged only in Oak Casks.
Long before he won his official licence in 1824, George Smith began distilling The Glenlivet® on a wild hillside in the remote highlands of Scotland's Speyside region, renowned then and now as the famous heartland of malt whisky excellence. Today, his successors proudly make the same fine whiskey, in the same fine place. The Glenlivet® distillery stands where George Smith founded it almost 200 years ago. Near the River Livet, Josie's Well still pours forth its uniquely pure, mineral rich water to feed the mash tun. As it did in 1824. At this height (850 feet above the sea) the stills are run at a gentle heat, yielding a delicate fragrant spirit unique even in Speyside. Along with two centuries of tradition, only so grand a place could produce so fine a whisky and give The Glenlivet® its incomparable quality.
The Duke of Richmond and Gordon was a great landowner in the Highlands of Scotland. In 1865 he wrote to George and John G,. Smith confirming the exclusive status of The Glenlivet®, already legendary even among the whiskies of Speyside, the famous heartland of malt whisky excellence

Not the Dram it Used to be

The Glenlivet now tastes completely different to 2 or 3 years ago. It used to taste of tropical fruit, candied peel and almonds. Now it has a pleasant but sour one-dimensional whiskey taste - a bit like Jack Daniels. This might be because it was a mediocre year, but more likely the rise of whiskey in the growing economies of the east has led the manufacturer to make their 12-year old stock go further somehow. We live in an age where you can name your price for anything that can legally call itself a Scotch single malt.

Really Good

Great quality whisky, with good taste, flavour and very good value for your money. even better when its on offer!

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Smooth with a zingy aftertaste

Tried this as it was on offer, never had it before but have enjoyed other single malts. Was not disappointed, really smooth with a lovely zappy finish full of flavour but not harsh or 'burning'. Didn't need any ice, perfect straight from the bottle.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Lovely whisky...

Gorgeous whisky, add water or ice if you must! But so much better if you don't.
