Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé
  • Nose : riche, complexe. Derrière une fine note de bois toasté, le premier nez révèle de nombreux fruits secs (amande, noix, raisins). Il évolue sur le toffee et le caramel au beurre salé. Quelques agrumes (zestes d’orange) arrivent en point d’orgue. L’ambiance est chaleureuse et solaire.
  • Palate : ample, profonde. Avec fraîcheur, l’attaque en bouche nous fait savourer des abricots mûrs juteux. Floral (lilas, jacinthe), le milieu de bouche est délicatement épicé (poivre noir, cannelle). Au fur et à mesure, elle devient exotique (mangue, fruit de la passion).
  • Overall : onctueuse, gourmande. Elle évoque un flan à la vanille. Des raisins de Corinthe et de la poudre de cacao se déposent progressivement sur les papilles. L’arrière bouche est balsamique (laurier, thym). La rétro olfaction est fruitée (poire, prune) et le verre vide noblement boisé.
The brand

The brand

Dubbed simply The Glenlivet, a name which at the time represented a region extremely well-loved for the quality of its whiskies, this distillery was first granted its licence in 1824. Seen as an act of bravery for some and an act of betrayal for others, this allowed it to get a step ahead of the other distilleries in operation. Today one of the most prominent distilleries in Scotland, its single malt is known throughout the world. Mainly matured in ex-bourbon casks, The Glenlivet has a fresh and spring-like character marked by citrus and floral notes. Bottlings aged entirely in sherry casks can only be found through independent bottlers such as Gordon & MacPhail.


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Un-Chillfiltered Collection enables enthusiasts to enjoy the flavour of whisky that has not undergone chill filtering. Like cognac, armagnac and other fine spirits, most whiskies today are chill filtered. The whiskies in this range have an appearance and aromatic range that is much more faithful to the original products. Richer, oilier, more aromatic and distinctive, these whiskies are from single casks or are a blend of two or three casks at the most. They offer the ultimate authentic taste experience!
