We have a winner in the whisky rat race, a gold medalist…in fact Glenlivet 18 year old received this prestigous award twice at the annual International Wine and Spirits Competition held in London. The distillery is one of the largest in terms of production and capacity, boasting around 21 million litres of spirit per annum, that is a lot of whisky!! The spirit for the 18 year old champion is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry butts, a gorgeous mouthful of this dram should be enjoyed on a regular basis!
Rich fig, raisin, almond and walnut notes mingle with forest-floor notes and a whiff of camp fires gone grey and cold. â€œChristmas cakeâ€ aromas – cake spices, nuts, dried fruit, sherry.
