Glenlivet's "Cellar Collection" was launched in 2001. The series was born as a tribute to a tradition handed down over the years by the directors of the distillery, who have always selected the most exceptional casks to preserve and age in Glenlivet Cellar. This Glenlivet French Oak Finish is one of the Cellar Collection's youngest Single Malts: it was distilled in 1983 and bottled in 2003. What characterizes it is the aging, very peculiar. Part of the whisky has matured in ex-Sherry casks, while the remaining part has matured in ex-Bourbon casks. After being blended, the whisky matured for another three years in French Limousin Oak casks.

The result is a rich whisky with a pleasant sweetness. Very aromatic, with notes of fruit jam, caramel, vanilla and dried fruit. The whole is enriched, then, by notes of damp wood. Jim Murray, the famous whisky critic, described it as 'sophistication and attitude rolled into one'.
