Product Description

The Glenlivet Winchester Collection 1967 brings together malts from a number of rare oak casks, the youngest of which was filled in December 1967. When whisky is slowly maturing in its cask, a small amount of whisky evaporates through the wood and into the atmosphere, known as the Angel’s Share. Each year, roughly 2% of the liquid leaves the cask this way, which means that 50 Year Old whisky casks will generally have lost 60-80% of their liquid. As a result, only a very small amount of precious whisky was left for bottling in June 2018.

The whisky is non-chill filtered at cask strength, and boasts a rich and fruity nose, notes of apricot jam and sweet ripe peaches, and a hint of toasted almonds. It has an incredibly smooth taste with fondant orange and milk chocolate flavours, an amazing velvety texture and a long, and luxuriously sweet finish.
