New Glenlivet Cellar Collection 1973 VintageFebruary 18th, 2010
I received a press release of the next Glenlivet Cellar Collection. It’s a 1973 vintage. I’ll be getting a review sample and will let you know what I think after I taste it.
Here are some additional details which am taking from the press release:
Hand selected by The Glenlivet’s Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, and comprised of the oldest and rarest stocks in 1973, this exclusive offering is bottled at natural cask strength (49% ABV) without the use of chill-filtration. It is aged in a combination of sherry and refilled American oak casks (a single ex-sherry butt and two refilled American oak hogsheads), resulting in what the press release describes as a “perfectly balanced yet vibrant whisky.”
Valued at $1,250, only 240 bottles of The Glenlivet Cellar 1973 will be available in the United States.
