Amazon. The awe-inspiring moist broadleaf tropical rainforest in South America.
Honestly, who doesn’t think of the Jeff Bezos behemoth as their first thought on that word?
Like with the book industry, Amazon is seemingly trying to crush and conquer the world of online Whisky shops with their dangerously competitive prices and are now releasing their own exclusives. Glenlivet 12 Illicit Still is one of these exclusives.
Marketed as a nod to the illicit Scotch Whisky trade and their founder George Smith, this is an official Glenlivet release that is not chill-filtered and is at 48% ABV. Bar the Nadurra range most of Glenlivet’s products are chill-filtered to prevent any Scotch mist appearing in their bottles. Why they hide this impressive ABV in the tiniest sideways letters is beyond me. However, lets not bash a good thing.
