The Glenlivet Blethermen Single Cask Edition is named after The Blethermen, a landmark on one of the original smuggling trails out of the Glenlivet Valley to the Scottish market town of Perth. The routes were originally used by the founder of The Glenlivet, George Smith and the illicit distillers of the 18th and 19th Centuries to transport their goods to sell in larger Scottish towns.
Drawn from a single Blethermen cask picked for its exceptional quality from The Glenlivet inventory, The Glenlivet Blethermen Single Cask Edition has been bottled after 16 years of maturation, at around 52.5% cask strength and without chill filtration to offer the purest expression of The Glenlivet style, providing the closest experience possible of drinking a dram straight from the cask. Just 570 bottles of Blethermen Single Cask Edition have been drawn from the cask, making it a real whisky collectors’ item.
Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet Master Distiller, comments: “I am honoured to present The Glenlivet Blethermen Single Cask Edition to The Glenlivet fans in Hong Kong. Each addition to The Glenlivet Single Cask Editions range offers its own individual insight into the provenance, artisanal production techniques and smooth, floral, fruity house style of The Glenlivet. Bottled straight from the cask in which it has been matured, this unique combination of liquid, cask and age will never be replicated.
Tasting Notes: The Glenlivet Blethermen Single Cask Edition will provide whisky fans with the opportunity to experience The Glenlivet in its purest form and learn about the heritage of the Speyside region through its unique taste profile, featuring sweet and fruity aromas of banana, peach and creamy toffee on the nose. The palate is silky smooth with flavours of sweet juicy orange, spicy cinnamon and a touch of ginger.
