Rum finishes are still quite rare on whisky. It’s very nice to find a Glenlivet at a whopping 40 years of age that has been finished in a jamaican rum barrel!
Glenlivet 1972-2012, 40 years old cask 12208. 700ml, 46,1%
Glenlivet is the oldest legally operating distillery in Scotland and one of the biggest single malt brands worldwide. While Glenlivet’s core range has been received well by whisky conoisseurs globally, it’s their older bottlings from the mid to late 20th century that truly shine.
