A powerful and unique sampling of three experimental Whiskies from one of Scotlands legendary distilleries. 

George Smith was running an illegal still on the estate of the Duke of Gordon in the wee early 1800’s — who he supplied with the occasional dram. The Duke sponsored legislation in 1823 that made Whiskey distilling legal in the UK, it just so happens that George Smith was the first one granted a license. Today The Glenlivet is one of the "Big Three" Single Malt producers. Their Whiskies are Speyside and the water for the mash comes famously from "Josie’s Well" nearby. The Glenlivet produces a wide variety of Single Malt agings and cask combinations, with the remaining Spirit an indispensable component in some of the most famous blends.

The Glenlivet Spectra is not "a" Whisky. As the name implies, The Glenlivet Spectra is a range of three different limited edition Single Malts from one of the best names in the business. The distillery calls them "three mysterious" expressions. Spectra 1 is a fruity dram they call "our secret orchard." Spectra 2 has notes of the sea and a campfire by the sea. Spectra 3 is creamy, warm, and smooth. If you know your Glenlivet, then you know that some of those flavor profiles are a radical departure from the core Spirit. And that’s kind of the point. But with the Spectra box set you get all three to sample.

The Glenlivet did something really interesting here. They have made the Spectra presentation an interactive, mobile experience. Each Spectra owner will have a special QR code scan-able access to a private, immersive tasting experience where they will share their observations with each other and match them with the official notes from the distillery.

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.
The USA is buying half of the bottles from The Glenlivet Distillery, which are single malts.
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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
