A bucket list dram.

When you describe your Whisky as the "Single Malt that started it all" then you better be able to back it up. Luckily Glenlivet have been doing so since 1824, having only closed once during World War II. As the leading Single Malt vendor in the United States and second biggest globally, it’s safe to say their iconic smooth flavor has continued to attract Whisky drinkers for centuries. Having stayed true to their slow distillation process for smooth tasting Scotch, Glenlivet now produce almost 6 million liters of Malt Whisky every year and show no signs of slowing down.

With this expression however you are not just getting any old liter from the Glenlivet production. This is truly a top-shelf malt. Every drop of this 21 year-old has been matured in hand selected American and European casks of the finest quality. If you enjoy the classy Speyside flavors of Single Malts then look no further for a real treat of a Scotch that is worth every single penny. A smart castaway stranded on an island with 3 items would select a bottle of this Whisky. A genius would select 3 bottles

The USA is buying half of the bottles from The Glenlivet Distillery, which are single malts.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Bottles from 1970s and 1980s having the Glenlivet name on them, are not always from The Glenlivet Distillery, it could possibly only be referring to the area.
