General description

Livet 18 is one of the most subtle, silky, soft, and balanced whiskies around, so much so that some may find it boring. Nothing really sticks out, gentle vanilla on nose leads into supple, soft honey, citric palate with less than expected cask oakiness of 18 years. Bit of sherry is in there but nowhere near some of the Macallans or Abelour Abunadh.

This is my perfect speyside malt, it's got a lovely rich smell of caramel, honey and toffee. In the mouth it goes down a treat it's so smooth has a great sweet taste full of that great speyside character. Ends with a short but sweet finish. This has a great golden colour to boot!

ripe oranges, marzipan, nut wood, chocolate: great nose. taste: grainy, sweet and sour citric notes, salted toffee and chocolate. the finish isn't too long, with syrup and sweet and sour notes. not a very complex or intriguing whisky, but very well balanced and enjoyable.

Fruity, soft, and slightly woody nose / oily texture / oilyness stays in the mouth / fruity taste with later on a pleasant dough/flowery taste / also some wood taste / also sweetness / a little peppery "bite" in the fairly long aftertaste. Fine single malt under €70,00.
