Glenlivet 18yrs - Sherry Notes?

Postby Novice Scotch Fan » Mon Sep 07, 2009 3:01 am

I am drinking Glenlivet 18yr, and tasting what I regard as sherry on the palate. However, the Glenlivet website makes no mention of aging the spirit in oak casks that held sherry, but rather bourbon. Are sherry casks used at all?

Yes, Glenlivet 18 is a marriage of fully-matured bourbon and sherry casks.
