The Glenlivet “Code”: the mysterious whisky just launched in the USA!
The Glenlivet distillery, located in the heart of the Speyside in Scotland, is releasing a new whisky expression with a strange name: the CODE.
Indeed, conversely to all whiskies launched so far with a full description of the make and the tasting notes, the CODE is a complete mystery concerning its craft and its aromas and flavors. For the fun, here is the description of the whisky from The Glenlivet:
As you can see, not much of any hint…!
This is coming from Alan Winchester himself, the Glenlivet Master Distiller.
He offers to all whisky aficionados an opportunity to crack the CODE of the whisky nosing and the tasting notes.
First, you should get a bottle or at least a dram of the Glenlivet CODE.
The Glenlivet Brand Ambassador is pouring the very first drops of the Glenlivet CODE in the US.
Then you go online (see the link at the end). The Master Distiller will give you some hints on the four main aromas for the nosing and on the four main flavors on the tasting.
FIRST TIME IN THE USA, LAUNCHED IN JULY 2018
Actually, the Glenlivet already created such peculiar expressions in the past, launched without any tasting notes: the Alpha and the Cipher releases, but they were not available in the United States.
It is then the first time that a Glenlivet mystery whisky is ever launched in the country!
WHAT WE KNOW: THE EXPERIENCE
Now we get the color, deep copper
And the taste? Delicious!
But don’t count on me to uncover my notes (see below anyway…), so, exceptionally, there will be no description of the nose, palate and finish, as everyone should taste it unbiased: that’s the innovation.
WHAT WE KNOW: THE LOOK
The packaging is all black and gold, looking very good
The bottle itself is also black: you can’t even guess the color of the spirit if you don’t open it!
TAKE THE CHALLENGE!
Intriguing isn’t it?
Do you feel you have a good nose and palate? Or do you want to find out whether you have a good nose and palate?
Try this link online to meet with Alan Winchester and the CODE challenge!
Based on your proposal, you will get a percentage of “CODE cracking”! GOOD LUCK.
By the way, I have taken it, and the result is:
I hope you get to that level!
