Boasting the classic flavours of The Glenlivet bound up in a creamy, smooth texture, this expression is a tribute to the one who started it all. A selection of traditional and American oak first-fill casks are used to mature the whisky, following a method developed by founder George Smith. It is then combined with American first-fill oak barrels, which have never been used to mature whisky before. This single malt's use of select casks results in a well-balanced and smooth taste. As a result, its flavour is sprinkled with citrus fruity tones, complimented by its pale gold colour.
