The Glenlivet 12 year old single malt
The single malt that started it all. Distilled, matured and bottled in Scotland. Single malt Scotch whisky. George Smith's definitive legacy. The Glenlivet 12 Year Old is perfectly balanced with a lively gold colour and playful interlacing of floral and fruit aromas. Colour - bright and lively gold. Nose - vibrant aromas of summer meadows and tropical fruits notably pineapple. Palate - floral notes, smooth and sweet fruit notes of fresh peaches and pears, vanilla. Finish - marzipan and fresh hazelnuts. In 1824, George Smith established his distillery in the remote and wild location of Glenlivet. Here, he found the perfect conditions to craft the definitive Single Malt Whisky. Through this timeless primeval valley run the icy waters of the river Livet. Its name,""smooth flowing one""in Gaelic, reflects the Glenlivet's beautifully rich and elegant flavours. High up in the remote area of Glenlivet, George Smith was the first to produce a whisky of such exceptional quality that it went to define the taste of speyside. His definitive single malt inspired so many other distilleries to adopt the appellation 'Glenlivet', that it became known as the""Longest Glenn in Scotland"". In 1884 a legal agreement was reached to distinguish Smith's original whisky by referring to it exclusively as 'The Glenlivet'.
