The Glenlivet Launch event–Founder’s Reserve (and the  Winchester Collection 50 yo)

Last week, I was very fortunate to attend the global launch of a new, permanent addition to the core Glenlivet range. The occasion, held in The Library, a swanky members only club near London’s Trafalgar Square was the perfect setting, and Glenlivet had clearly gone to much effort to brand the place its own with bottles from their range strategically …

The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso Cask

I know a lot of people love the Glenlivet Nadurra (Gaelic : for nature). For some reason I’ve never fell in love with that expression. I won’t say it’s not good, since it’s a good ex-bourbon whisky at a lovely strength, etc. But, we never hit it off me and Nadurra, i mean. The new Oloroso Cask matured Nadurra promises …

The Glenlivet Guardians Chapter–Tasting notes and thoughts

It’s very hip these days for whisky brands to let us the consumers be more involved in the whisky creation process. A few distilleries (such as Glenmorangie – who even went further with this letting the consumers choose the name, cask profile and even packaging of their new Tagtha expression) have done so in the past, and The Glenlivet have …

The Glenlivet XXV–25 yo

Priced at above 200 quid, this is the most expensive and exclusive (and well aged) ‘Livet around.  It has been finished in Oloroso casks (not sure for how long) to add some more depth and complexity. Not sure why a 25 year old dram needs any further finish to be “complex”, but there you have it. This is the last …

The Glenlivet 21 yo

We’re continuing the journey to discover the Glenlivet core range and having left the oldest 21 and 25 un-reviewed ,I am going to fix that pretty soon, starting with the 21 yo. Priced at a hundred quid or so it is not cheap, yet not over expensive if you compare it to other well liked 21 year olds such as …

The Glenlivet Vertical (12,15,18 year olds)

Tony Soprano loves his Glenlivet 12, and I love Tony soprano, hence I love The Glenlivet 12. Sort of anyways. As the Glenlivet is probably one of the best selling single malts out there (with Glenfiddich) and very well know, It’s only appropriate we have some more of that on the blog. I know we’re posted a guest post reviewing …

Tasting Glenlivet Alpha (and learning about Lilt)

A riddle wrapped up in an enigma – I can’t think of a better way to describe this whisky. Would you agree?
I’m an Israeli, born and bred and until two days ago I had never heard about the wonderful (or not quite so) soft drink by the name of Lilt. As it happens i was a wee kid growing up …

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old

Believe it or not, as much as a whisky person as I came to be, and in spite of the fact that I like Highland whiskies, I never got a chance to taste any expression of The Glenlivet. Heard about it and read about it quite often, saw it on store shelves (on and off line) but never had the …
