- Glenlivet 42 Year Old 1973 Cadenhead's
Glenlivet 42 Year Old 1973 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in bourbon hogsheads and bottled 2015 by WM Cadenhead for the Small Batch range. 630 bottles.
Nose: Soft and juicy. Peaches, passion fruit, soft lime notes and also kiwi and lemon.
Palate: More juicy fruits. For such a delicate whiskey this feels very thick. Olive oil, hints of Sauvignon blanc and lots of syrupy fruits.
Finish: Dried citrus fruits with some soft woodiness. Creaminess grows but mingles with lots of thick tropical fruits.
Glenlivet Single Malt Whiskey
Having out-grown his distillery at Upper Drumin George Smith built a new distillery in 1858 at Minore just short distance upstream of the River Livet and which he opened the following year and named Glenlivet Distillery. During the 1850s the Edinburgh firm of Andrew Usher produced the first vatting of malt whiskey from a single distillery using a number of different vintages of Glenlivet whiskey. Following expansion in 2010 this distillery is now equipped with fourteen stills making it one of the largest malt whiskey distilleries in Scotland. The range includes Glenlivet Founders Reserve and Nadurra.
