Perhaps more than the rye grain used to make the malt itself, time may be the most important ingredient in creating other-worldly whisky.
Time is definitely on our side here.
From a single Oloroso Sherry cask, distilled on June 6 1975, and bottled 35-years later on October 4th, 2010, Signatory aged and bottled a precious lot of 411 750 ml bottles at full cask strength, 54.3% alcohol by volume. Nothing at all was added to this divine whisky.
The famous Glenlivet distillery, founded in 1824, is the top Scotch brand in the United States, and second world-wide. They produce about 6 million bottles a year of their various Scotches. But nothing they make is as ambitious as what we’re talking about here.
This 1975 Glenlivet 35-year by Signatory is one of the rarest whiskys on the planet, and far exceeds even the original distillery’s aged bottlings. It is a true collectible, each bottle is painstakingly labeled with all of the exact dates and individual cask number and characteristics. And once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
