Glenlivet 1983 / French Oak Finish / Cellar Collection
70cl / 46%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A frequently-overlooked bottle in Glenlivet's Cellar Collection, perhaps as it remains one of the youngest of the series (even at 20 years old). This is sterling stuff, nonetheless, described by Jim Murray as 'sophistication and attitude rolled into one'. With the finish adding nuance rather than dominating the palate, this is a minor classic of the genre.
