"Off-dry malted barley and light toffee smells greet the olfactory sense along with flowery fragrances of heather, rose petal and pine. Entry features sweet grain and candied apricot tastes; the midpalate is mellow, malty, fruity (white raisins, apricots) and sophisticated. Ends on a buttery note. Remains the Speyside benchmark."
Only one distillery around the Livet is permitted to call itself 'The Glenlivet'. It is one of the classiest, sophisticated malts with a light to medium body and a restrained, long finish.
