Last year, The Glenlivet distillery pushed the boundaries to create a mysterious whisky: The Glenlivet Code. No tasting notes. No cask details. Just an opaque black bottle that conceals the enigmatic amber liquid inside. Encrypted by our Master Distiller Alan Winchester, this covert creation was designed to test even the most experienced whisky connoisseurs’ taste buds. Inspired by famous British code-breakers, The Glenlivet Code challenged single malt lovers to unlock the secrets of its taste.
And what about you? Were you able to identify the flavors and crack The Glenlivet Code?
Did you test your mom? Was she able to crack it?
Matured in a mixture of American Oak barrels and finished in first fill ex-Canadian rye barrels, you’ll discover a fruity and sweet nose with notes of baked red apple, creamy toffee, and cinnamon, combined with delicate floral aromas and a touch of violet.
Upon tasting, you’ll find fruity aromas of pears and juicy pineapple, followed by spicy flavors of sweet ginger, licorice root, and subtle fresh mint leaves. It all leaves you with a finish that is long, fruity, and refreshing.
