The Glenlivet's Pullman Edition series celebrates the glory days of early U.S. train travel. The 20th Century Limited was the most famous train of its fleet, capable of traveling from New York to Chicago overnight, and the term "red carpet treatment" was coined for the way its luxury passengers were greeted. The Glenlivet was the featured Scotch in its dining car in the 1930s following Prohibition. Only one cask, aged 14 years in refill 500-liter Spanish oak, was selected for this release, limited to 588 bottles worldwide. It's bottled at cask strength 57.73% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"This expression is the most intense of the bunch, with concentrated flavors of bittersweet chocolate, woody spices (cedar, allspice, cinnamon) and ginger. That telltale sherry nuttiness and marmalade shine through into the finish, which rides off into the distance elegantly dry. A couple of drops of water are necessary to fully appreciate what this beauty has to offer. "
