At the heart of The Glenlivet's most prestigious expressions is The Sample Room, a place of continuous improvement and creativity, where the makers spend their time crafting, tasting, and refining their whiskey until they achieve the finest balance of flavor.
The Glenlivet 18-Year-Old Batch Reserve is finished through a combination of first- and second-fill American oak casks, which add tropical fruitiness to the liquid, and ex-Sherry oak casks, which add a spicy complexity. The result is a gorgeous single malt scotch whiskey that is complex yet elegant and balanced. This whiskey has won more awards than any other expression, a true example of The Glenlivet's exceptional quality and taste. Enjoy a fragrant, elegant, and complex expression on the nose with sweet oakiness, rich fruit, and toffee notes.
This whiskey has an intensely complex balance of sweet spice and indulgent juicy orange burst on your palate, leading to a crescendo of chocolate-dipped raisins with a long, lingering finish.
