Glenlivet 21 Years Old 1991

Distilled in oak casks from 1970 and eventually bottled 21 years later in 1991, the Glenlivet 21 Years Old 1991 has been 47 years in the making. The bottle this whisky comes in is as much of a treat as the liquid inside. Hand blown to recreate the types of bottles used in 1740, this particular rarity would take pride of place in any collector’s cabinet. This bottle rests in a hand made leather case, finished with brass fittings. A real touch of class.

About the Glenlivet Distillery

The Glenlivet distillery often market their whisky as ‘the malt that started it all’. This is reference to the distillery having deep roots within the parish of Glenlivet being the oldest operating distillery in the area. On top of this, the distillery was amongst the first to take out one of the new licences issued after the passing of the 1823 Excise Act which is recognised as being the starting point of the modern Scotch whisky industry.

The distillery draws its water source from Josie’s Well (3,500 gallons of pure cold water per hour) deep within the area of Moray. The water source is Icey cold and often said to be partly responsible for the malt’s distinct taste.

Even to this day the whisky continues to dictate the single malt market as Glenlivet’s single malt is currently the best selling malt in the US and the second best globally.

Nose

Notes of sandalwood and pine are sure to fill your nose and the room alike after your pour the initial glass. A full and rich stream of cereal and pine is sure to fill your nose prior to that first sip.

Palate

Rich and full, with sweet notes such as fruitcake and spicy ginger. Undercutting these flavours is a nutty, oily note sure to engage your taste buds.

Finish 

Long and soft with a soft chewy oak. The smoky flavour of this wee dram is sure to stick with you for a while.
