The opening salvo of the Glenlivet range, named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith. It's classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.

Very clean and fresh, with notes of grass, freshly cut apples, and pear drops, enriched by a rich toffee character. A slight floral note, with menthol and custard-tart notes.
The gentle fruitiness continues on to the palate, with pear the dominant note, accompanied by a refreshing mintiness. Very soft texture and mouthfeel with no rough edges. Easy to drink.
Soft, fruity, and whistle-clean.
