About The Glenlivet XXV Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Following distillation, The Glenlivet XXV is aged for approximately 23 years in traditional oak casks. After its initial maturation, the whisky is double barreled, or finished, in hand-selected, first-fill sherry casks for an additional two years. The sherry casks impart a luxurious and bold aroma of ripe fruits, dark chocolate and creamy vanilla to the whisky. In addition, the sherry casks contribute hints of raisins, dates and figs, which complement the whisky's notes of walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. The finish is long opulent, with notes of sherry, red fruits and spices mingled together.
Glenlivet XXV earned the Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge, the International Wine & Spirits Competition and the The Scotch Whisky Masters Competition. In addition, it earned a score of 93 points from Whisky Advocate
, which said that the whisky's "flavors are seamless and elegantly balanced." It also earned a score 95 points from the Beverage Testing Institute.
Each bottle of Glenlivet XXV Single Malt Scotch Whisky is encased in a wooden box that is reinforced with limestone and brushed steel.

About The Glenlivet
During the early 19th century, illegal distilleries were commonplace throughout the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1823, however, Alexander Gordon pushed the Excise Act of 1823 through Parliament. The Excise Act allowed illegal distillers throughout Scotland to apply for and obtain licenses to legally distill spirits. In 1824, a businessman named George Smith applied for one of the first licenses in the Speyside region of Scotland and opened the doors to The Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly two centuries, The Glenlivet Distillery has been producing the “single malt whisky that started it all.”
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
