Just when things couldn’t possibly get any better we dropped a massive sherry bomb in the form of the first-ever official Glenlivet Single Sherry Butt to come to Australia, hand selected by Glenlivet’s legendary Master Distiller Alan Winchester exclusively for The Whisky Club’s enjoyment.
All the more special because it’s extremely rare to find The Glenlivet single sherry cask editions, this Exclusive Member Add-in (a special extra on-top of June’s superb Tomatin) was a scarce opportunity for Members to savour the legendary Glenlivet in it’s most natural state – Single Cask, non-chill filtered, natural colour and at a whopping 60.1% ABV.
Cask Number: 56070
Cask Profile: First-fill ex-Oloroso Sherry Butt
Bottled: October 2018
Aged: 15 Years
Outturn: 630 bottles
Colour: Deep rust
Nose: Strong and sweet, the sherry influence is clear. More than a hint of toffee coated orange peel, raisins and warm spices, mingled with dark chocolate, cloves and butter.
Taste: Packs a big spicy punch. Full bodied, thick and oily, rich with chocolate coated dark fruits, mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and gooey toffee.
Finish: Long and luxurious, the spicy finish will leave your mouth with a buttery feel, wanting more to the very end.
Of course this exquisite malt sold out in no time at all. Join the Club now to avoid missing exceptional malts like this.
