Description

The Glenlivet 14 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky hails from Scotland’s Speyside region, renowned for its delicate and floral whiskies. This expression takes that Speyside character a step further with a unique cask maturation process. After spending 14 years maturing in traditional bourbon and sherry casks, the whisky receives a special finishing touch. A portion of the spirit is rested in ex-cognac casks for at least six months. This cognac influence adds a subtle twist, introducing notes of raisin and dried fruit alongside the classic Speyside fruitiness.

On the nose, the initial aroma is a burst of sweet and fruity notes. Honey and citrus take center stage, with hints of pear and apricot peeking through. The influence of the sherry casks might reveal a touch of spice, like cinnamon or nutmeg. As you take a sip, the creamy texture envelops your palate. The malty character, a signature of single malt whiskies, shines through alongside hints of vanilla and toffee imparted by the bourbon casks. The ginger and spice notes from the nose become more apparent on the taste, adding a touch of complexity. The cognac finish truly comes alive here, with raisin and dried fruit flavors dancing on the tongue. The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant warmth and a lasting impression of the whisky’s unique character.
