Our first exclusive bottling in the revamped Connoisseurs Choice range is a stunning single-cask Glenlivet 2003. Aged for 15 years in a refill bourbon barrel and bottled on 7 September 2018, it's exactly what we want from Glenlivet – fruity and creamy with balanced spice. Another example of why everyone wants to look around the Gordon & MacPhail warehouses for casks – they have some great ones hiding on the racks.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Apple Danish pastries and Portuguese custard tarts. Grapefruit and orange peel develop, with tangy touches and soft spice. The spice becomes bready, with whipped cream and a dusting of icing sugar. A decadent breakfast.

    Palate: Juicy fruit and spice explodes across the palate. Sweet pineapple and pear are joined by sharp cinnamon-spiced apples and singed tart-tatin pastry. There's a hint of liquorice and barrel char underneath, with wax-polished oak pushing through the middle.

    Finish: polished oak and meadow flowers fade to leave digestive biscuits and a pinch of anise.

    Comment: An excellently fruity Glenlivet, with soft creaminess and just the right amount of spice.
