With a strong
reputation for very special expressions, every year a selection of exceptional whisky is brought to the
market from The Glenlivet Cellar Collection. A vatting of 10 casks from a single day’s distillation of
August 24, 1972 will be this year’s selection. After the filling on that Thursday, the parcel of casks were
placed into Warehouse 5 at the distillery and stored in the lower tier of stows 87 and 89. The richness and
fruitiness found in this creation could only be obtained by the choice climate, cask wood, and generous age. Bottled at
natural cask strength without cill-filtration, the 1972 collection is a definitive Speyside single malt whisky. Only 800
bottles have been released to the US which will run about $700 each.
