Previously only available in travel retail, this is a limited-edition bottling from Glenlivet, packed with rich fruit and spice and aged for nearly 20 years in a single cask. The typical Glenlivet fruitiness is there, but with the spice and biscuit notes cranked up several notches – a great winter dram.

Glenlivet is one of the best-known Scotch whiskies in the world, adored for its approachable, fruity style. It's one of oldest Scotch whisky distilleries still operating, too, having first acquired a licence nearly 200 years ago, in 1823. Recent years have seen a host of new releases, such as Founder's Reserve, new Nadurra expressions and a 50-year-old bottling.
