We did the drams of distinction tasting. Although nothing about this tour was bad and the guide tried very hard to make this a great tasting, it just didn't do it for me. I didn't feel connected to the distillery afterwards and I had better tastings for about the same price at distilleries nearby. If you already love Glenlivet this would probably be very fun for you because they do serve a couple of high-end and limited drams that are very hard to come by anywhere else.
Good informative distillery tour. Did enjoy the tasting as well. Cafe was pleasant and at competitive prices. Good selection in the shop.
