Cadenhead’s ‘Small Batch’ Glenburgie-Glenlivet 15 Year Old Cask Strength 700ml 54%
Distilled in 2004, this vatting yielded 570 bottles.
Cask Type: Bourbon hogsheads
Bottled: June 2019
Here’s another little gem from WM. Cadenhead that was distilled at the Glenburgie distillery (also known as (Glenburgie-Glenlivet) in Northern Speyside in 2004. The spirit was then matured in a pair of ex-bourbon hogsheads for 15 years and then bottled in 2019 at 54%alc (cask strength).
As with all their Cadenhead bottlings, the small batch series is non-chill filtered with no added colouring. Australia only receives a very small allocation of Cadenhead each year making the brand a very sort after indie on our shores.
