Single Malt Whisky Fans in Malaysia accorded the first to get their hands on The Glenlivet’s latest rare 18YO Single Cask Edition
We were very honoured to be invited together with other Single Malt enthusiasts, being treated to the tasting of The Glenlivet 18YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 8032) in an exploration of the pure, rare and unique expression of the latest limited edition from The Definitive Single Malt.
Set to be a coveted collectors’ item, there are only 276 bottles of this definitive Speyside Single Malt available! Matured for 18 years before being bottled at cask strength and 60.5% ABV without chill-filtration, The Glenlivet 18YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 8032) captures the incredibly rich and distinct flavour of the cask itself, locking in its character, resulting in an elegant combination of delicate floral aromas and fresh orchard fruits, leaving you with an incredibly soft, sweet and slightly dry finish.
Each bottle of The Glenlivet 18YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 8032) is individually numbered and presented in a hand-crafted wooden box to echo the craftsmanship that went into the whisky within.
Instead of only having to taste the whisky in the standard rock glass, we had the opportunity to savour their first dram of The Glenlivet 18 YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 8032) in one of the world ́s best spirits glass aptly named The Neat Glass. Specifically flown in just for the event, the award winning NEAT glass enhanced the tasting experience as it allows the pure bouquet of The Glenlivet 18 YO Single Cask Edition (Cask 8032) to come, offering the guests another dimension to taste this highly coveted whisky in its purest form.
Another highlight of the evening, we were introduced to T’lur, Malaysia’s first local tropical caviar! Produced in Malaysia, T’lur caviar is harvested fresh from local-bred Siberian Sturgeon with no preservatives, making it a unique and the perfect accompaniment to the luxury of The Glenlivet 18 YO Single Cask Edition (8032). So good!
