Product Description

The Perfect Fifth prides themselves on a passion for identifying and procuring the finest whisky Scotland has to offer, one cask at a time. The process of selecting whisky entails sampling thousands of barrels from all across Scotland and choosing the few whose composition and character lives up to their standards and expectations. The casks are then subject to the scrutiny of the industry’s most revered experts. Only those that have met these arduous standards come under the auspices of the Perfect Fifth. Once the whisky reaches peak maturity, it is bottled at cask strength and then placed in their signature miniature oak barrel.

Glenlivet 40 Year Old Single Malt hails from one of the most enviable names in Scotch whisky history. This spirit was granted the rare opportunity to mature for four decades in the cask—making it one of the most anticipated Scotch whisky releases of the year. A fruity and zesty nose, peppered with a hint of spice, gives way to a palate that delivers soft malt and toast, with sweeter, fudge and heather honey notes layered as the experience continues. The finish is long and complex. This is a single malt not to be missed.
