The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using barley sourced from Crisp Maltings, Portgordon (Portgordon is a village in Moray, Scotland). After the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented in wooden washbacks for approximately two days. The wooden washbacks used by The Glenlivet are more difficult and expensive to maintain as compared to the stainless steel washbacks used by most Scottish distilleries, but impart a distinctive, floral quality to the whisky.
After the barley has been fermented, it is distilled twice — first through Glenlivet's wash still, and then again through Glenlivet's spirits still. Originally designed by George Smith, the copper-pot stills have a unique, lantern-like shape, which encourages contact between the whisky and the copper (the copper strips the whisky of any impurities it may have, and provides for a lighter and more pure flavor profile). In addition, the height of the stills ensures only the lightest vapors are condensed, making for a more delicate and elegant whisky.
The Original Stories lineup of whiskies is a celebration of the brand's passion and originality. These expressions are inspired by George Smith's illegal distilling escapades in the early 1800's as well as his visionary spirit. Bottled at 96 proof without chill filtration, the classic Glenlivet fruity and floral style is able to shine beautifully in this 12-year-old whisky.
