In 1594, deep in the Highlands of Scotland near Morinsh, the Battle of Glenlivet took place. A fearless and dramatic clash between forces led by the 7th Earl of Argyll on one side and the 1st Marquess of Huntly on the other. This bottling was named in honour of this great battle.
Nose: Perfectly balanced with rich, red toffee apples and hints of treacle. A cinnamon spiciness permeates through.
Taste: Bold flavours of honey and ripe pear intertwine with rich and luxurious dark chocolate and sweet ginger.
Finish: Long and smooth, slightly dry and spicy at the finish.
