A wonderful Glenlivet, launched for Travel Retail. This was launched in honor of Alan Winchester, who has been master distiller at the distillery since 2009. He created this whisky with European oak butts and first-fill American barrels as well as refill hoggies. Lovely stuff.
Ask #WhiskySanta for Glenlivet Master.
He'll grant one wish per day until Christmas...
The best thing I have ever tasted!
I was lucky enough to get a bottle of this drop for $90 duty free at the Brisbane International Airport in Australia and having never been much of a drinker, the only reason I bought this is because I was made a drink of it while in the airline lounge waiting for my plane and that first sip was so sublime, I swore right then that had I ever tasted a drink as good as this I may well have developed a penchant for drinking much earlier!
I was disappointed to find that it was not available at my local bottle shop. I bought the 18 year old instead and was not as impressed. If I ever come across another stash I will buy the all!

I bought this at Geneva Arport because of the attractive price 37€ equiv. in Swiss Fr. Fantasticly smooth taste, and better quality and value than many of the more expensive whiskies on sale "duty free"!

Bottle purchased in Duty Free was disgusting due to smell and taste or rotten wood /sweaty socks. Maybe a rogue bottle but if so where it's the Quality Control /Assurance?

Bought this, like others, at an airport...a litre for around 40 quid - hard to say no to. Lovely, smooth, sweet, hints of licorice, spice, damp oak, a good solid Glenlivet well worth this very low price. Great long finish too.

Glenlivet master distillers reserve
It's aged in three different casks for 6 years each (traditional oak, american oak and ex-sherry first fill casks). So it's not 12, it like a 18 yo.. A friend brought me one from UK (enoying a deal than when buying two, you pay 30£ per bottle), I'll gladly soon taste it.

got a bottle at Orlando international on my way home and have found it excellent, one of the smoothest and tastiest I have had , can't pick up on the creamy fudge though.

They won "Silver Distillers' Single Malts 12 years and under - 2014". So it's below 12years or at best 12years.

Smooth and delicious whisky. The master distiller has produced a expert blend, the 3 casks used bring it an unique flavour. For the 55$ price tag it is a good buy.

I am a huge fan of Glenlivet with the 18 and 21 amongst my favourite Speyside drops. Unfortunately, this one cannot compare to eithre and would recommend if you are considering buying this bottle that you pay a little extra for the 18.
