A single cask from one of Scotland's most famed distilleries. This was distilled in April 1996 at The Glenlivet in Speyside and matured for 13 years before bottling in October of 2009. A release of 432 bottles, bottled by Douglas Laing for the Old Malt Cask range.
Close to perfect for lovers of sherry cask aged whisky
Macallan 12 is my everyday dram; Glendronach 15 & Ballvanie Portwood 21 are my "treat yourself today" choices. If these are whiskies that you enjoy as well, do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle of this Glenlivet 13. Bottled at 50% abv, it opens up beautifully with a bit of water, though ice kills it. Wonderful aromas, flavors and mouthfeel as described on the box & bottle itself.
