We’ve been able to get our hands on the oldest official Glenlivet Single Cask to enter Australia. This stunning whisky showcases the pinnacle of the biggest producer of Single Malt in the world… the renowned Glenlivet Distillery.
Once a year, legendary Master Distiller Alan Winchester picks out a limited number of exceptional casks of all ages that embody the true essence of The Glenlivet. Exclusively for the Club, he’s selected American Oak Cask #1383 which was filled in 2000, a 21 Year Old whisky that’s spent all of its years softly maturing in the dark cask warehouses of the distillery. This is whisky in its most pure form, bottled non-chill filtered and non-coloured at natural cask strength, 56.1% ABV.
It's bursting with floral notes, peaches in syrup and crème brûlée topped with dried apricots and almonds on the nose. The palate reveals the decadence of this Single Malt with layers of tropical fruits alongside lemon meringue and strawberries & cream, with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. The finish is long-lasting and well rounded, white chocolate alongside marshmallows, toasted wood and rich mocha linger on the tongue to complete this delightful experience.
Take it as a tip from your friends at the Club, compared to other A-list Scotch distilleries, this Glenlivet Single Cask offers ridiculous value at $395 and is available for Member Exclusive Add-In this May.

Known as ‘the single malt that started it all’, Glenlivet Distillery was established in 1824 by farmer George Smith and was the first distillery in the Speyside region to be licensed under the new Excise Act of 1823. As we’ve explored in previous months, due to unfavourable legislation Scotland was a hotbed of illegal distillation for much of the 18th and early 19th century but the Excise Act provided a sensible framework upon which to bring the small operators in from the black market and create a scalable industry that has subsequently grown in to the multi-billion dollar powerhouse that it is today.
