When legalisation of distillers was proposed, George Smith, already an illicit whisky maker, was the first to apply for a licence. His son, John Gordon Smith assisted and succeeded him. After distilling on two different sites, in 1858 the Smiths moved to present location near the confluence of the Livet and Avon.
In 1880, the exclusive designation 'The Glenlivet' was granted in a test case.
The company remained independent until 1953 when it came under the ownership of Glen Grant.
In the 1960's a considerable quantity of the whisky was acquired by Gordon & MacPhail, leading to subsequent bottlings by them.
These very old and sometimes vintage-dated versions are identified as George & J. G. Smith's Glenlivet Whisky.
This fine George & J. G. Smith Glenlivet is a whisky of structure and complexity, flowery, fruity and peachy. A great aperitif.
Cask type - Refill bourbon barrels.
Nose - Sweet marshmallow mingles with sweet tropical fruits aromas including mango and banana. Pressed apple and zesty lime notes combine with hints of toasted malt.
Palate - Initially peppery but creamy with green apple, ripe banana, and grapefruit flavours. A hint of toasted oak leads to a subtle menthol edge.
Matured and Bottled by Gordon and MacPhail, Elgin, Scotland. - 6 hours ago
