Master Distiller’s Reserve – Floral, fruity smoothness. Solera Vatted – Uniquely Velvety and packed full of flavour. Small Batch - Delicately spicy and limited release.
The cornerstone of the range, the Master Distiller’s Reserve, showcases the triple cask approach perfectly: maturation in three types of oak makes for three times the character. This bright and lively gold expression has pear and fudge on the nose and fruit and spice on the palate. To finish, it dazzles with hints of marzipan and hazelnut. With so many flavours, it is a spirit to really savour.
Spending time in the Solera Vat gives this expression its truly exceptional character. Matured in three types of oak casks, the best of these casks are brought together in the Solera Vat. The never-emptied vat creates a rich whisky that develops in intensity and complexity every year. The high concentration of first-fill American oak adds creaminess, soft fudge and vanilla and it bursts with the smell of ripe orchard fruits and gentle caramel. It’s luxurious to taste, with a honeyed sweetness and the distinct presence of juicy pears.
“At The Glenlivet, we are fortunate to have an extensive collection of rare and aged whiskies that have made this range possible. By bringing together single malts matured in three different woods, we have created a range with a unique breadth and depth of flavour. ” Alan Winchester, Master Distiller.
Each unique expression of The Glenlivet Small Batch, is created with individually selected casks, chosen from the collection of rare and aged whiskies maturing in our warehouses. Every single cask must be nosed prior to final selection, to ensure that only the the most outstanding casks are used. These three cask types add layers of flavour, giving warmth, fruit and hints of spice with syrupy peach, vanilla, ginger and liquorice notes. Released only in small batches, this exclusive expression is truly special.
“A range of this nature can only be created with exceptional quality casks, industry leading expertise and a forward looking mindset; it is an honour that every bottle bears my name.”
Alan Winchester, Master Distiller.
