The single malt that started it all. 15 years of age. Distilled, matured and bottled in Scotland. Single malt Scotch whisky. The Glenlivet 15 year old, the French Oak Reserve. The selective maturation in new French Oak casks made from Limousin oak creates a characterful and unique expression. Colour - resinous gold. Nose - creamy and rich. Peel and candied grapefruit aromas. Palate - round, sweet, incredibly smooth. Fruity and nutty flavours. A gentle cinnamon spiciness. Finish - lingering with traces of toasted hazelnuts and almonds. 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 on 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 Glen in Scotland"". In 1884 a legal agreement was reached to distinguish Smith's Original Whisky by referring to it exclusively as 'The Glenlivet'.
