Single-malt scotch maker The Glenlivet will release its newest cellar collection in June. This scotch comes from its three best 1973 casks and is the eighth release of Glenlivet’s Cellar Collection.
The Glenlivet 1973 Cellar Collection is an extremely rare whisky, thanks not only to its age, but also to its cask profile. The whisky was selected from one single ex-sherry butt and two refilled American oak hogsheads, which represented the absolute pinnacle of the stock available from Glenlivet’s 1973 vintage. The result is a rich, fruity expression, bursting with orange flavors, sherry sweetness and gingerbread. Perfectly balanced, it fills the mouth and has an incredibly long and sweet finish. One for the connoisseur, it’s available only in strictly limited numbers. Like all the expressions from the Cellar Collection, it’s the liquid embodiment of a moment in history – a time capsule for the taste buds.
