The Glenlivet’s Winchester Collection

The ultimate gift for scotch connoisseurs, The Glenlivet’s Winchester Collection is the world’s first collection of 50 year old single malts. Vintage 1964, this scotch was created from an American Hogshead oak cask laid down to mature by Captain Bill Smith-Grant, the last distilling descendant of The Glenlivet’s founder, George Smith, on the 24th of April 1964.

Soon after singled out as a cask of exceptional promise, it has been tended to under the watchful eye seven Master Distillers and is the result of their unrivalled knowledge, unwavering care and unfaltering craft.

The pinnacle of distilling skill, this spectacular whiskey is part of a limited 100-bottle release drawn from a single cask and is a true feast for the senses.

Tasting Notes:

Exceptionally smooth and luxurious, luscious fruits of pear, orange and black cherry create the intoxicating flavours of this decadent dram. In the background, caramelised sugar and candy flavours elevate the richness of the taste, with notes of smooth creamy toffee resulting in a fantastically velvety texture. Complemented by the sweet aroma of honeycomb with dark chocolate, it lingers long on the palate and even longer in the memory.
