There are different visions on the start date of this Speyside distillery, officially called The Glenlivet. If we take the year in which a Glenlivet distillery was built on an industrial scale as the starting date, we are referring to 1859. We can state that with Glenlivet we are dealing with one of the first legal whisky distilleries in the Highlands (home distillery license in 1824), which greatly improved brand awareness. So much so that Glenlivet almost became synonymous with 'single malt whisky.' Many other distilleries therefore put 'Glenlivet' behind their name, until that was banned by the court. The Bottler Cadenhead does not care much about that prohibition, by the way. But The Glenlivet is still a big name; for example, it is the best-selling single malt whisky in the US.
A special edition of Speyside distillery Glenlivet: part of the spirit for this 15-year-old single malt whisky matured in Limousin oak casks. This resulted in a whisky that, apart from the fruitiness of Glenlivet, also has vanilla and wood notes.
This 18-year-old malt from The Glenlivet has matured in both bourbon and French limousin oak casks. A fairly rare combination that not only appears to enhance the fruity-floral Speyside character, but also introduces sherry tones. At 43%.
With this Glenlivet we have something special in our shop. It went into the cask in 1952 and was bottled by the Swiss Lateltin after an unknown period. The bottle has a screw cap, and whatever the label says, it's a single malt whisky!
In 1971, this Glenlivet single malt whisky was casked, in 2001 it was bottled at cask strength by Scott’s Selection. Anyone who knows this bottler knows that we are dealing with something special here. This is nothing less than a once in a lifetime whisky
Whether bottler Malcolm Pride still exists is questionable. They did not release anything since 2007. With the bottlings that they delivered until then, they scored almost 90 points! This 29-year-old Glenlivet single malt whisky is now in our shop!
