Official tasting notes
Check out the back label of the bottle for a comprehensive breakdown of Whisky Sponge’s tasting notes down to minute percentages, following the theme of their love for harvesting numbers and data.
Whisky Sponge Edition No. 57 ‘Glenlivet Distillery’ 14 Year Old Single Cask 700ml 53%
Out of Stock
Sourced from the warehouses of Signatory Vintage – Yielding 364 bottles.
Cask type: Sherry
Bottler: Whisky Sponge/Decadent Drinks
Bottling Date: 2022
Matured full term in a 1st fill sherry hogshead, this 14-year-old Glenlivet was originally up around 65% at cask strength, so Whisky Sponge brought it all the way down to 53% as the team felt it revealed a much easier, juicier and more despicably fruity profile at this strength.
The label artwork for this release celebrates all the hours the Sponge spends tirelessly toiling away in the ancient data mines of the Whiskynet – harvesting numbers for the great spreadsheet which must be updated and refined eternally.
Whisky Sponge comments:
“Here at Decadent Drinks, we are all about data! This gorgeous 2007 Glenlivet has been bottled in special celebration of our precious pile of data that we keep in a secret cupboard!
