Canadian whisky lovers rejoice because that sweet nectar of the gods The Glenlivet’s unique 14-Year-Old ex-cognac cask has landed on our shores. Breaking the convention of traditional whisky, The Glenlivet 14-Year-Old encourages the drinker to rethink the traditions within the single malt category, thanks largely to its depth of flavour. This is the first time in The Glenlivet portfolio that a single malt whisky selectively finished in high-quality ex-Cognac casks has been brought to the Canadian market.
The Glenlivet 14-Year-Old combines the brand’s iconic style of citrus, floral notes, and creamy smoothness with the depth of influence that you get when using ex-Cognac casks. This flavour comes in the form of moist raisins, chocolate, and licorice, to deliver a deep and intense experience to deliciously coat the palette. The 14-Year-Old is the latest step in the distillery’s quest to inspire and welcome a new generation of whisky drinkers to the portfolio through bold, unconventional flavour combinations and finishing techniques.
“We crafted The Glenlivet 14-Year-Old with the curious single malt community in mind,” said Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet Master Distiller. “The beauty of the whisky lover is that their palate is always evolving, searching for the next flavour experience, and we’re proud to add this delicious aged single malt, with portions selectively finished in ex-cognac casks, to our portfolio. The blend of rich Cognac-cask flavour influences and our signature fruity, smooth style are guaranteed to captivate single malt drinkers looking to explore.”
