We could not choose our favourite between these three refill casks of Glenlivet with subtly contrasting personalities, so we tried something we usually don't do... a vatting of all three. With the help of 18 more months in an Oloroso Sherry cask to assure a perfect marriage, the final result retains all the qualities of the three casks… and perhaps even something new. It's a very refined high-intensity cocktail of honey, propolis, beeswax, herbs and tropical fruits. Its profile is elegant and austere, very firm and mineral. More complex than flamboyant, with the typical classiness of decades of aging in refill oak... and a hint of fruit from the fresh Oloroso finish. Only 560 bottles at Cask Strength, because the "angels" had already taken a huge share from the casks!
