The 2011 release of The Glenlivet's limited edition Cellar Collection. This rare 1959 was drawn from four refill American oak hogsheads. Only 400 bottles were produced.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/10/2011

Appearance

Clear, deep golden.

Aroma

Musty spicy nose, reminiscent of an antique shop with aromas of toffee apple, cream of soda vanilla and linseed oil impregnated cloth.

Taste

If the nose is antique shop then the palate is stately home furnished with plenty of old oak. Gently spiced with nutmeg and clove and wonderfully rounded with a touch of maple syrup and almond nuttiness.

Aftertaste

Majestic, gently oaked lightly spiced finish.
