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 and it is built on three key pillars:
Rarity: The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition is a very rare tasting experience. Just a few very high quality rare casks are hand-picked to be released as a single cask.
Purity: The whisky is bottled at its natural cask strength and without chill filtration to retain the same purity as it had while maturing in the cask.
Uniqueness: Every cask produces a unique flavour which can never be replicated. Every bottle is also individually numbered making them very unique!
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 Second Fill Hogshead Oak Barrel, picked for its exceptional quality from The Glenlivet inventory, The Glenlivet 18 Year Old Single Cask Edition (Cask #8032) has been bottled after 18 years of maturation, at 60.5% 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 276 bottles of The Glenlivet 18 Year Old Single Cask Edition (Cask #8032) was drawn from the cask.
Nose: An elegant combination of delicate floral aromas and fresh orchard fruit. Crisp, green apple and zesty lemon mellow to reveal lavender honey and a hint of spicy liquorice.
Palate: Sweet citrus mandarin and tangy grapefruit that are perfectly balanced with juicy, ripe pears and flaked almonds.
Finish: Soft, sweet and slightly dry.
