Cadenhead’s ‘Original Collection’ Dufftown-Glenlivet 10 Year Old 700ml 46%
A new 2020 collection matured in Bourbon and PX Sherry casks
Cask Type: Bourbon/Sherry
Bottling Date: September 2020
This Dufftown-Glenlivet 10-year-old is part of Wm Cadenhead’s latest independent bottling, 2020 ‘Original Collection’ that has replaced the earlier Single Cask and Small Batch collections with the entire range bottled at 46% ABV. Matured in ex-Bourbon casks before been finished in ex-PX Sherry casks, the distillery tasting panel says it has….. “great depth, sweetness and complexity from the mix of both sherry and bourbon casks”
As with all Cadenhead bottlings, this ‘Original Collection’ is non-chill filtered with no added colouring. Australia only receives a very small allocation of Wm Cadenhead’s each year making the brand a very sort after indie on our shores.
