About The Glenlivet 36 Year Old 1976 Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Glenlivet 36 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Exclusive Malts Bottling) was distilled on November 5, 1976 and matured for over 13,000 days (36 years) in an oak cask (Cask # 18080). Following maturation, the whisky was bottled at cask strength by the Creative Whisky Company, an independent bottling company led by whisky expert David Stirk. "Each and every bottle comes with my personal guarantee that I have nosed, tasted and approved the cask of whisky that it came from," says Stirk.
The Glenlivet 36 Year Old Scotch Whisky (Exclusive Malts Bottling) has a woody, floral aroma, with hints of oak, dark herbs and wildflowers. The flavor is elegant and soft, with notes of ripe yellow fruit, apricots and hints of vanilla cream, which are complemented by subtle woody undertones and lead to a soft, delicate finish.
Only 164 bottles of this whisky have ever been produced.

About The Glenlivet
During the early 19th century, illegal distilleries were commonplace throughout the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1823, however, Alexander Gordon pushed the Excise Act of 1823 through Parliament. The Excise Act allowed illegal distillers throughout Scotland to apply for and obtain licenses to legally distill spirits. In 1824, a businessman named George Smith applied for one of the first licenses in the Speyside region of Scotland and opened the doors to The Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly two centuries, The Glenlivet Distillery has been producing the “single malt whisky that started it all.”
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
