Strikingly original. This Glenlivet 1966 is an achievement for the ages. Matured in oak casks for 47 years, this was bottled only in 2014. Coming in the original box, this is about as hard to find as they come. Bottled by Gordon & Macphail, this is free from colouring and chill filtration. It is bottled at 40% abv.
The nose gives fragrant vanilla aromas, with honey, pineapple, green apple and chocolate. The palate is full of white pepper, charred oak, grapefruit and lime. The finish is medium in length, but delicate and creamy, with the subtle note of vanilla creeping its way back in. A gorgeous dram.
