The whisky is matured in a "variety of traditional aged oak casks", then married together in a selection of aged oak casks and American first-fill casks. The whisky is named in honour of the distillery's founder, George Smith, and represents the classic Glenlivet style. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)
