.....OK, that's not a serious title really. What I'm saying is that this is so, sooooo drinkable! I've just finished one sample, (which was to be my third and final drink of the day after reviewing a couple of others) but I've found myself pouring another.

Obviously a popular classic which has been reviewed numerous times so I'll try and add what I can. It is a very very smooth whisky. I get strong notes of fennel and aniseed - both on the nose and palate. Quite full bodied and rich, this actually reminds me more of a good blended malt in that it goes for silky smoothness rather than intriguing complexity, (think Johnnie Walker Gold or Chivas Regal 18yo).

Not so long ago I might have dismissed this as a single malt lacking in complexity. Now though (with a bit more maturity), I love it for what it is. Smooth, laid back and relaxing.

Thanks for the review. Glenlivet 18 is one of my favorites. I think I'll go pour myself a dram.
