The Glenlivet 1972 Bottling Note

Distilled in 1972 and bottled on the 24th August 2005, a rare cask strength release from The Glenlivet.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is rich and fruity. There are notes of sweet Rocha pears and calvados with notes of dry hay and heather honey, a touch of marmalade and oak. The palate is thick and full and wonderfully smooth. There are notes of marmalade and wood smoke with spicy fruitcake and butter. The finish is long and barley sugared with an oily smoothness.

User Reviews of the Glenlivet 1972 - Cellar Collection

One of the best

This is my second bottle of this whiskey, which I consider to be one of the best ever made and certainly one of the best Glenlivets I have ever had, beaten only by the 21 year old Glenlivet Gathering special bottling and the Douglas Laing 60th Anniversary bottling. Very smooth, tasting a little like a really good fruitcake, and with a long oily, sweet finish, this bottle is also praised by a number of my fellow scotch afficianados. Well worth the price. I would love to compare it to the 1964, which is considered by many to be the best Glenlivet ever made.

A superb Glenlivet

Like a spring day on the hillsides, with hints of heather and distant fruit orchards. Very smooth and mildly oily with a nice long sweet finish. The second best Glenlivet I have ever had the pleasure to partake of (the best was the 21 yr old special bottling for the Glenlivet Gathering).

Possibly the best Glenlivet I've ever tasted

Exceptionally smooth and rich with definite notes of fruit and a hint of heather. A mite chewy, which I like, and a beautiful long sweet finish.

Smooth and 'clean' taste

A very gentle whiskey with a hint of Oak and nutty flavor that provides for a great taste (no ice please), if servered slightly chilled. Cannot say I tasted, or smelled, any 'pears' as Master of Malt claims, but it sure was a great whiskey, much like the Nandurra, but with less of a kick.
