The Glenlivet distillery were one of the first to use French oak casks to mature whisky. They have mastered this technique and deliver their expertise in this 15 year old expression. The French oak delivers a rich exotic character to this single malt that is distinctive and elegant.
Limousin oak is used which is cut in France’s Dordogne region, where the oak is often used to mature cognac. The Limousin oak has a low density which allows whisky to sink deep into the wood. When carefully controlled over time the result give a unique, pleasing spiciness.
‘An outstanding expression of The Glenlivet’ – Dominic Roskrow, The World’s Best Whiskies 2010.
