The Glenlivet Cipher

The Glenlivet Cipher Bottling Note

Back in 2013 The Glenlivet released a whisky called Alpha with no tasting notes, no cask details and an opaque black bottle. 'Twas quite good fun as everybody tried to guess the production technique used, before the eventual reveal (on that occasion they'd used casks conditioned with Scotch as opposed to bourbon or Sherry, unique for The Glenlivet).

Now it seems we're being treated to a new mystery, a cipher, in fact! Master Distiller Alan Winchester once again invites us to decipher the secrets of a unique single malt...

User Reviews of the Glenlivet Cipher

Whisky heaven

This is what all Glenlivets should be! Firstly no hint of colouring in the taste, secondly no chill filtering! Hallelujah!! It is clearly bourbon aged, then finished. I tasted it side by side with the 48% ABV 16yo Nadurra. Both exceptional but the Cipher is absolute perfection.

I'm a novice and am not great at picking out nose or palate notes yet (I got 35% on the "game" webpage), but this is definitely a delicious, smooth, well balanced whisky. An exquisite example of the craft from one of my favourite distilleries.

Lovely and smooth, malty, liquorice, cinnamon, I don't know but suspect that oloroso casks may have been involved somewhere. I'm glad I got three bottles because it sold out fast.
