The Glenlivet Single Cask: Squadron 70 once-in-a-lifetime experience
For the first time ever, The Glenlivet is offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience available only to Scotch whisky lovers in Canada: the rare release of a one-of-a-kind, hand-selected single cask named The Glenlivet Single Cask: Squadron 70.
This bottling is to honour the descendant of The Glenlivet’s founder George Smith: Captain John Gordon Smith Grant. A pilot in World War One and missing heir to The Glenlivet Distillery, he was wounded in action and received care at a Canadian field hospital in Doullens, France. His funeral was presided over by the RC Bishop of London, Ontario.
Only a few bottles will be poured and to get in on this opportunity, Canadians can reserve a piece of history today at https://theglenlivetsquadron70.ca. It features exceptional aging characteristics and is available for $200.00.
The cask used was a handpicked American oak hogshead cask featuring exceptional aging characteristics, slowly matured in the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s whisky country. The whisky has been aged for 8 years.
As for the tasting notes, well, the cask being so exclusive it has not been opened yet. J The delicate and complex character of The Glenlivet single malt Scotch whiskies is derived from their signature copper stills and further expressed in maturity and cask selection. Before the bottling of Squadron 70, the cask liquid will be nosed and approved by the master distiller.
In January, the bottles will be hand-delivered at a special tasting event (tickets: $50.00) with The Glenlivet’s Global Brand Ambassador, Ian Logan in Vancouver.
