Nose: Deliciously sweet aromas reminiscent of traditional pear drop sweets and intensely fresh lemon sherbet enhanced with soft and juicy honeydew melon.
Palate: Lavish orchard fruit flavours of freshly baked apple pie and soft ripe pears are rounded off by a smooth vanilla cream and a gentle hint of warm ginger.
Finish: Smooth and remarkably long.
About The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition
The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition is a limited edition single malt Scotch whisky that celebrates the heritage and provenance of The Glenlivet. Built on three core pillars – rarity, purity and uniqueness – it is exceptional in quality, distinctive in flavour and locks in the original character from the cask’s influence. The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition is an exclusive and rare collectable that maintains the exceptional quality and flawlessly smooth and fruity taste profile that The Glenlivet Distillery is famous for.
Drawn from a single first fill American oak barrel picked for its exceptional quality from The Glenlivet inventory, The Glenlivet 15YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 906283) has been bottled after 15 years of maturation, at 59.7% cask strength and without chill filtration to offer the purest expression of The Glenlivet style, providing the closest experience possible of drinking a dram straight from the cask. Only 174 bottles of The Glenlivet 15YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 906283) was drawn from the cask.
“What we have here today is truly a collector’s item. The Glenlivet 15YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 905283) is not available anywhere else in the world as its release is only to Malaysia,” said Pernod Ricard Malaysia Brand Manager Benedict Yong.
Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet Master Distiller, comments: “I am honoured to present The Glenlivet 15YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 906283) to The Glenlivet fans in Malaysia. Each addition to The Glenlivet Single Cask Editions range offers its own individual insight into the provenance, artisanal production techniques and smooth, floral, fruity house style of The Glenlivet. Bottled straight from the cask in which it has been matured, this unique combination of liquid, cask and age will never be replicated.
The Glenlivet Guardians Malaysia brand ambassador Lionel Lau recommends drinking the 15-year-old Single Cask Edition with a splash of water (one-third of the amount of whisky in your glass) to fully enjoy the whisky.
“A major no-no is to mix it with soda or any other kind of mixers because you really want to taste the whisky in its purest form. Don’t get me wrong, you can drink whisky any way you like but just not for something as pure as this,” he explained.
