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

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.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
