So, to the prizes…

The Glenlivet XXV

Using some of the rarest of their whiskies, all of which have been aged for at least 25 years, this is a batch-produced whisky finished in ex-sherry butts. A team of experts individually select each cask and monitor the whisky in its finishing process to make sure the Oloroso-soaked wood adds the subtlest sherry tones to an intense, silky and elegant whisky. This molten amber liquid is nearly as splendid to hold in your hand as it is to drink. Afterwards, the finish is incredibly long, rich and balanced. But it’s the nose on the 25 Year Old that really drives whisky-lovers to distraction – with scents of bittersweet dark chocolate and plump, sweet sultana. This opulent whisky, the oldest expression in The Glenlivet’s core range, is a sublime choice to mark special occasions.


Rich amber, golden shades


Dark chocolate, sultanas


Silky sweet, cinnamon notes


Incredibly long, rich, balanced


Creamy camembert and fine, artisanal cheeses

The Glenlivet 18

Over the course of 18 years The Glenlivet Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, takes this expression through a combination of cask types, including both first and second-fill American oak (for tropical fruitiness) and ex-sherry oak (for spicy complexity). The result of this deft navigation of the distilling arts is a gorgeous single malt that is complex, yet elegant and balanced. The 18 Year Old has won more awards than any other expression; every bottle is a true example of the quality and taste of The Glenlivet. Any bottle deserves pride of place in your cabinet… perhaps to be held back for a fitting occasion? It is, after all, crafted to impress.


Old gold, apricot


Rich fruit, toffee


Balanced, bursts of sweet orange


Long, with raisins and spice


Fillet mignon and foie gras
