Frankly, I can’t cease fascinated about the dram and all the unbelievable details that make it so particular. It was distilled on February third, 1940, by Glenlivet in Scotland. The oak for the cask was felled throughout a time when Abraham Lincoln was nonetheless a lawyer. It’s seen 15 U.S. presidents come and go, a number of of whom weren’t born when it was crammed. It survived the second World Conflict. The parents filling the sherry cask knew they’d not be alive to see the ultimate product. The 1-ounce pattern despatched to me was valued at $7,720, if we’re going by the public sale worth.
A mere 250 bottles resulted—249 now, following the public sale of bottle one. The remaining will head to personal gross sales at costs that haven’t but been made public. Undoubtedly, that sum will probably be as large because the liquid throughout the hand-blown crystal decanter.
What’s the world’s oldest single malt scotch style like? Let’s begin with the nostril. The gorgeous umber liquid emits a vibrant fruity, sweetness, imparting hints of sherry. Deep whiffs are met with a nutty perfume; almond oils. There’s a pop of mustiness, akin to strolling by means of a library overflowing with historical books. It helps anchor the age of the distillate, mentally.
