About The Glenlivet Guardians' Chapter Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter Single Malt Scotch Whisky was personally selected by The Glenlivet Guardians, a global group of The Glenlivet enthusiasts who, through a series of private tastings, exclusive events and shared commentary, chose their favorite of three single malts crafted by The Glenlivet.
The malt chosen was aged in a combination of American oak and Oloroso Sherry casks and has a distinctly spicy character. On the nose, The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter Single Malt Scotch Whisky has rich notes of fruitcake, candied apples and orange marmalade, which lead to tastes of juicy raisins and dark chocolate on the palate. The finish is accented by tangy orange zest and an underlying spiciness reminiscent of cinnamon toast.
The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a limited release which will only be available for a short time — pick up a bottle today!
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.
