    Scott's Selection Glenlivet 1970

    Ok Peat Monsters, I need some guidance....

    I ran across some Scott's selection liquor store. One was a Glenlivet 1970, bottled in 2003. Since I do like the Glenlivet line, this one intrigued me. so I came home and tried to do a little research on it. There is verry little out there about it. I found this site http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/EI_Scott_EN.shtml but no mention of the 1970 Glenlivet. A search here turned up this http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...%27s+selection

    but still no mention.

    Does anyone have any actual information on this bottle?
    Cheers,

    Scott

    Yeah, I saw that. But it still does not give me anything to go on.

    I did figure that this bottling may just be too small for anyone to have actually tried one.....
    Cheers,

    Scott

    It was rated SUPERB/Highly Recommended (90-95) by F. Paul Pacult and Wine Enthusiast Magazine. So at least he liked it.

    I personally haven't found any "bad" bottlings from Scott's. The main thing is that these are usually single barrel. So, You may loose a little depth and gain uniqueness.
