9/10 points Quarterly Review of Wines: "Fine Malt whisky, some peat, sweetish, oak, firm weight, long finish. (Autumn 2011)"
Producer notes: " After more than 18 years in selected casks, The Glenlivet 18 Year Old becomes a malt whisky of unmistakable maturity and depth. With a beautifully controlled balance and an unfailing elegance, The Glenlivet 18 Year Old has a discreet sherry influence with fruity and floral aromas. It is the perfect after-dinner dram to sip on a cold and frosty evening by the fireplace. Nose: Rich, with sweet and floral flavors. Taste: Honey-rich and toffeed on the palate with nutty, spicy overtones. Finish: Exceptional length of flavor."
