Scotch Whiskey | Single Malt Whiskey
The Glenlivet Code Single Malt Scotch Whiskey is a new twist to the signature Speyside fruity style of The Glenlivet distillery. Whiskey previously matured in oak casks has been finished in first-fill ex-Canadian rye barrels to add a different layer of complexity and taste. It is the first time The Glenlivet has finished in ex-Canadian rye casks.
On the nose, The Glenlivet Code is fruity and sweet with notes of baked red apple, creamy toffee, and cinnamon, combined with delicate floral aromas and a touch of violet. On the palate, it offers fruity aromas of pears and juicy pineapple, followed by spicy flavors of sweet ginger, licorice root, and subtle fresh mint leaves. It gives a long, fruity, and refreshing finish.
The Glenlivet have created Code, a limited edition that follows Alpha and Cipher, to encourage people to experience whiskey aromas and flavors without preconceptions. Pour yourself a dram and then, without tasting notes or cask information to guide you, enter Glenlivet's virtual challenge room (using the Code on the back of the box) and see if you can crack this whiskey's combination of aromas and flavors. Enjoy!
