Finn Thomson Whisky - Glenlivet 50
The Crown range will comprise the oldest single malts from Scotland’s most sought-after distilleries, while the Rare series includes single cask whiskies aged for at least 30 years. The Core line offers single cask bottlings.
The debut release of the range is Glenlivet 50 Year Old, one of the oldest whiskies in the Crown line.
The 49.8% ABV expression was matured in a first-fill Sherry hogshead, with the Sherry being bottled by merchant Peter Thomson’s in Scotland.
In the 1970s, before the legal requirement that all Sherry must be bottled in Spain, it was common for Sherry to be shipped in casks to Scotland for bottling.
The 50-year-old Glenlivet whisky, with a yield of 127 bottles, offers notes of fried fruit and oloroso Sherry on the nose, while the palate brings an initial sweetness of salted caramel followed by dried fruits.
