The Glenlivet Guardians, of which I am a member, held a tasting in Toronto at The Vault at One King West to choose the next Limited Edition Single Malt. For those of you who are Guardians, or follow The Glenlivet, you will know that the Classic, Revival and Exotic were tasted (more information can be found at www.theglenlivet.com) and all were enjoyed but we had to choose one. I chose the Exotic, why? because I felt that it was unique and would be a great limited release compared to the classic which I also loved but personally felt it was as it name suggests “Classic” and is more in line with The Glenlivet profile.
There were also two other standouts for the occasion: the first was that Ian Logan, the Glenlivet Global Ambassador, was in Toronto that week and conducted the tasting and second the night finished off with a sampling of The Glenlivet Alpha (will be released in very, very limited quantities at around $170).
