Exclusive Taiwanese release from The Glenlivet

The Glenlivet is recognising the flourishing Taiwanese whisky market with a new release.

The 14 Years Old Sherry Cask expression pays homage to the region and its travellers, and will be a permanent global travel retail exclusive for Taiwan. It follows the success of the Scottish distiller's 13 Years Old Sherry Cask in 2018.

The Glenlivet says the 14 Years Old edition - matured in olorosso sherry casks - is fruity and floral with a nose of blackcurrants and sultanas, a rich palate of milk chocolate, toffee and hazelnuts and a long, warming finish.

To mark the launch, travellers will be invited to try the expression in a series of events at Taiwan Taoyuan Airport's Pillar Bar, in the departure hall in terminal two. The Glenlivet also enlisted Taiwanese whisky expert Steven Lin to star in a video introducing the whisky, which is avaialble to view on YouTube and Facebook. 

Laura Lang, global marketing manager, malts for The Glenlivet, said: "Taiwan is a lead market in the world of single malt and Taiwanese consumers are discerning and advanced in their knowledge, so honouring this with an innovative and premium selection is very important to us."

Steven Lin added: "We are honoured that The Glenlivet has chosen to create this exclusive homage to the Taiwanese market. The whisky community is growing exponentially and the appetite for single malt Scotch whiskies in our country has never been greater."

The Glenlivet 14 Years Old Sherry Cask is available at Everrich and Tasa Meng Duty Free Stores in Taiwan.
