The Glenlivet Single Cask: Pullman Water Level Route
The Glenlivet // Speyside, Scotland
The Water Level route was the scenic journey between New York and Chicago by way of the great lakes taken by the famous 20th Century Limited train of the Pullman Company. Travelers would watch the scenery go by sipping The Glenlivet, which was the only Scotch served in its club car following Prohibition in the 1930s. This single-cask release was aged 14 years in refill American hogshead casks, bottled at 54.9% ABV and limited to only 321 bottles worldwide.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"This fruity, rich whisky has a dense, viscous texture that coats the tongue. Grape aromas give way to peach, pear, marzipan, cocoa and creamy vanilla on the palate. An elegant puff of smoke evokes the image of the train chugging through the countryside and also serves to balance the sweetness. "
