The Glenlivet 50 year old Winchester 1966 Collection
The Winchester Collection is the first series of rare and precious 50 Year Old single malt scotch whiskies from The Glenlivet.
Distilled by former Master Distiller Robert Arthur in 1966, and now being released by current Master Distiller Alan Winchester in 2016, the Winchester Collection has been crafted for generations. It is a tribute to George Smith, who created the Original Single Malt that set the standard in taste and quality.
With the casks approaching 50 years old and the peak of maturation, Master Distiller Alan Winchester decided it was time to release these rare and precious stocks from the Distillery’s past. As such, the collection has been named The Winchester Collection. Released over a number of years the entire collection is anticipated to become one of the most sought after and priceless whisky collections.
Vintage 1966 is the second edition from the Collection, only 100 bottles of which will be released.
Carefully crafted, matured in an exceptional Sherry cask and cared for by Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, this exclusive whisky has been slowly maturing at The Glenlivet Distillery for 50 years.
The whisky is an exquisite and unique liquid, bursting with flavours from the sherry influence and luxuriously dark in colour.
Bursting with influence from the sherry cask, you are instantly welcomed by incredibly sweet and rich aromas of treacle, moist raisins and homemade apricot jam.
The perfect combination of the spirit and the sherry cask, releases a wonderful array of flavours. An abundance of soft fruits, sweet treacle and juicy orange, intermingled with cinnamon and liquorice adding a layer of delicate spice. Starting from the first sip, a sweet texture envelops the palate.
Exceptionally luscious with a long smooth finish, and a hint of dryness.
