Glenlivet 13yo Sherry Cask Single Malt
Glenlivet 13 Sherry Cask was bottled and released in late 2018. After spending 13 years maturing in the finest quality Oloroso sherry casks, Glenlivet could get their hands on. This is as honest and pure an example of Glenlivet, and indeed Speyside. You will find anywhere on the market. Honestly, as an Asian exclusive, this expression is quite elusive and a fantastic addition to any collection.
It offers rich winter berries, dark chocolate tart, creamy vanilla and a range of intriguing spices. Which help to bring the whole thing together. As a special edition release, the availability of this whisky is extremely limited in numbers. Therefore, act fast if you want to grab yourself a bottle.
Color: Dark mahogany, legs are thick and slow.
Nose: Dried dark berries, slightly caramelized, brown sugar, dark chocolate and plums compote. Heavily sweetened black coffee with cardamon. After a few minutes, there’s dark chocolate and coffee with a bit of dried fruit, sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg notes.
Palate: Sweet dried fruit followed by chocolate. Fresh ground coffee and sweetened black coffee, dry spices and oak spices.
Finish: Short-medium length, lingering sweet coffee and dark chocolate.
This has been a huge hit with Oak and Barley supporters. If you see it in stock, buy it, it never lasts long.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Glenlivet 13 Sherry Cask
Quote 1 “Glenlivet, while a classic style of Speyside single malt, has always been a massive turn off for me. That cliche style of scotch, that all the cheap blends try to copy, is normally the first experience that most of us have with Scotch and decide that we don’t like Scotch, period.
Quote 2 “I ended up drinking bourbon whisky for years. Someone slipped me a slug of this last year and I was blown away by it. My jaw hit the ground when I was told it was a Glenlivet and I demanded to see the bottle as proof. “
Quote 3 “Amazingly well crafted sherry matured whisky. It has all the strength of flavours of those big hitting Kavalans, without the burn or the hardness that they give off if you try and drink them neat. It’s obviously different to the Macallan style of sherry cask matured but it holds its own.”
