The Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky 15 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Speyside|
The 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation in which a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. In fact, we at The Glenlivet were one of the first to use French oak for making whisky, a technique that has since been imitated the world over. The Limousin oak we use is cut in France's Dordogne region, where it's often used to mature cognacs. Its low density allows whisky to sink deep into the wood, and we carefully control how long the whisky matures in the casks so as not to overpower the desired result: a unique, pleasing spiciness. Deep, intense gold color. Creamy, rich, buttery aromas. Fruit and nut on the palate. Flavors of sweet fruits, delicate spice. Finish is lingering, sweet almond and spice. Enjoy with full-flavoured venison dishes.
Don't dilute this light, gentle Scotch too much. Enjoy the honeyed, fresh tropical fruit aromas and mouthwatering vanilla and almond flavors with a hint of smoke and spice on the finish. Light body. Good value.
Glenmorangie Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky 10 year oldThe original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks. It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried 'designer casks' from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time. Color: Pale golden brown. Aroma: Light and delicate, floral with traces of citrus and vanilla, with a light smokiness too. Taste: Beautifully balanced, with honeyed nuts coming through. Aftertaste: Clean and salving, short.
