Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: The Glenlivet Alpha whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be The Glenlivet Alpha whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

The Glenlivet Alpha Bottling Note

Strictly 1 per customer

Here, we have something unique. A limited release of 3,350 bottles (only 600 in the UK!) of pure mystery and intrigue. The label says "from The Glenlivet Distillery", and at this point that's all anybody knows. No tasting notes. No cask details. Nothing.

Over the coming weeks, the mystery will be slowly unravelled through a variety of online sensory challenges, which can be found at TheGlenlivet.com and Facebook.com/theglenlivet from the 7th May. Master Distiller Alan Winchester will also be interacting with the online community, fielding questions and pointing people in the right direction...

“Flavour is a multi-sensory experience: one that combines the subtleties of sight and sensation in the mouth, in addition to taste and smell. By withholding information on the casks used to create The Glenlivet Alpha and encouraging people to use their senses, I hope they will gain a greater appreciation of its particular flavour, and expand their understanding of the great complexity and depth of our unique single malt whisky. I can’t wait to hear people’s reactions.” - Alan Winchester

Good luck unlocking the secrets of this enigmatic single malt! The answers and full tasting notes will finally be released at the end of June.

User Reviews of the Glenlivet Alpha

What??

There are some very interesting people on this website that attempt to talk about whisky. Most are idiots. Some of the comments below are good examples of such.

Blatant rip-off of Bruichladdich's legendary BLACK ART series. What a con.

Above Average

We were fortunate to acquire 3 bottles of this in China, supposedly out of 200. Quite worth it and above the average Glenlivet

What a Joke!

Pay premium rate to "unravel the mystery" of whether or not you've been shafted on the price, AFTER all the hoopla of Pernod's "Age Matters" campaign? This is a product for the easily fooled, but it helps take the heat off Macallan for the 1824 Series.

Unlucky but Lucky

I was very unlucky to miss out on owning a bottle (or too tight!), but lucky enough to know someone who opened their bottle and passed along samples to their nearest and dearest. And I very much agree with a lot of the tasting notes and reviews, this bottle is similar to the Nádurra and I'd go as far to say slightly smoother and more scrumptious after allowing it to air in the glass for a while. I would suggest before giving a negative review on just the price and marketing gimmick alone that you wait until you can taste it. My two cents ;)

Selling out everywhere

It has caught peoples' imaginations though. Selling out instantly everywhere in the UK

My reaction

Are you having a laugh. 100 quid no cask info or age, this tops anything ardbeg could ever conjure up
