After tremendous success of Alpha (2013) and Cipher (2016) in 2018 the Glenlivet Distillery released another mysterious malt called Code.
All we know about the expression is that it is a single malt from the Glenlivet Distillery. No information of age, vintage or cask was revealed, instead Alan Winchester, the company master distiller, asked drinkers to scan the code on the bottle using Shazam app, which opens a website where they can share which aromas and flavors they pick up in the whisky. He will reveal The Glenlivet Code details at the end of the year. The whisky is bottled at 48% abv and comes in black, opaque bottle.
The Code is a very rich and fruity dram, full of tropical fruits on the nose, and palate balanced with nutmeg, ginger and nicely integrated oakiness.
