The Glenlivet has unveiled its newest expression: The Glenlivet 14 Year Old. This is the first time The Glenlivet portfolio has introduced a single malt whisky finished in ex-Cognac casks to the U.S. market.
The Glenlivet 14 Year Old sees The Glenlivet’s style of citrus and floral notes complemented by the influence of ex-Cognac casks, which include moist raisins, chocolate and licorice, the company says. “The new liquid is the latest step in the distillery’s quest to inspire and open up to a new generation of whisky drinkers through bold and unconventional flavor combinations and finishing techniques.”
The Glenlivet 14 Year Old is now exclusively available in the U.S.
“We crafted The Glenlivet 14 Year Old with the curious single malt community in mind,” says Alan Winchester, The Glenlivet Master Distiller. “The beauty of the whisky lover is that their palate is always evolving, searching for the next flavor experience, and we’re proud to add this delicious aged single malt . . . The blend of rich Cognac-cask flavor influences and our signature fruity, smooth style are guaranteed to captivate single malt drinkers looking to explore.”
To sync with the new color of The Glenlivet 14 Year Old’s packaging, The Glenlivet has teamed up with the Purple Heart Foundation to give back to those who serve. For every bottle of The Glenlivet 14-Year-Old sold to participating retailers from July 1 to December 31, 2019, The Glenlivet will donate $1 to The Purple Heart Foundation, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000, up to $100,000.
The Glenlivet 14 Year Old is available for a suggested retail price of $55 per 750-ml. bottle. It is the first The Glenlivet expression to launch since the brand unveiled a fresh new look and campaign earlier this year.
