The oldest permanent release within The Glenlivet range.
An authoritative and supremely premium expression of both packaging and product. A 1980 vintage selection which has been “finished” in first fill sherry butts, giving a nutty spiciness to the multi-layered flavour of the spirit and enriches its colour.
Each individually numbered bottle is presented in a solid wooden box, reinforced by limestone and sealed by a removable brushed ingot. The use of a wax seal on the bottle reinforces the precious nature of the contents within.
A certificate of quality gives details of the story of the craftsmanship which goes into the whisky, displaying the signatures of those responsible for ensuring the required standard has been met at the four key stages of the production process and the accompanying booklet which tells the product story. Limited annual volume
Nose: Soft round fruity oakiness with hints of dried spices combined with subtle oloroso sherry aromas
