The Glenlivet Winchester Collection, Vintage 1966

A scotch for the ages

A scotch for the ages.

Glenlivet made only made 100 bottles of this 50-year-old scotch, and at $25,000 per bottle, it’s not something to be drunk (or purchased) casually. Yet for the true connoisseur, the Vintage 1966 lives up to its price: Stunningly smooth, almost sweet at times, yet also spicy and redolent of cinnamon, citrus and licorice, it’s a unique experience. And it represents a half-century of care by Glenlivet’s master distillers. When it was first casked, the Beatles were the big thing. Now the big thing is…Kanye West? Drink and remember, or at least imagine, a different time.
