The Glenlivet has revealed its first peated flavor in over one hundred years: The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish.
In the early 1800s, The Glenlivet distillers used peat smoke to dry the malted barley and The Glenlivet whisky would have had a rich, smoky flavor, the company says. Reinterpreting this historic tradition, this new expression is matured in American oak casks which have previously held heavily peated scotch to bring forth a subtle, aromatic smoky flavor.
Each bottle of The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish is bottled and released in small batches, the company says, with no chill-filtration.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish has an aromatic smokiness, according to the company, complemented by spicy fruits. The smokiness is juxtaposed with the smooth, fruity house style of The Glenlivet Single Malt.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish will be available in CA, DC, FL, GA, IL, MA, MI, NY, TX, WA markets at a suggested retail price of $84.99.
