Glenlivet 1980 / Cellar Collection
70cl / 43.3%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A relatively young entry in Glenlivet's much vaunted Cellar Collection, distilled in 1980 and bottled 'only' about 31 years later. Initial reports have been excellent for this whisky, with praise splurging across the internet, and we're rather pleased to have grabbed a few bottles.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

Nose
Mature but marvellously fruity and fragrant. Apple, jasmine tea and BBQ pineapple-there's even a hint of bubblegum in there. With water a fragrant sweetness like honeysuckle blossom, rose.

Palate
There's sufficient cask to add a lightly oily suppleness and toasted almond. The pineapples continue.

Finish
Long, refined and elegant.

Comments
A stunning Glenlivet and a superb example of the benefits of long relaxed maturation.
