Speyside distillery The Glenlivet is celebrating Dubai Duty Free’s 35th anniversary with a new 35-year-old single malt.
Only 35 bottles of The Glenlivet 35 Year Old Dubai Duty Free Exclusive edition have been produced, and are available at Dubai International Airport from December for around US$10,000 each.
The Glenlivet master distiller Alan Winchester said: ‘Befitting of this anniversary and in celebration of our long-lasting relationship with Dubai Duty Free, we matured this exclusive edition for over 35 years, in a hand-selected cask carefully chosen for its rich character and exceptional quality.
‘Crafted under the watchful eye of our team of artisans, only 35 bottles have ever been produced, with its rarity equalled only by its quality.’
The expression was matured in an ‘oak hogshead’ and is described as having ‘ripe peach, sweet pear and strawberry jam notes on the nose’ and notes of ‘luscious tropical sweet kiwi, honey dew melon and a hint of cinnamon with ginger biscuits’ on the palate.
Each edition is individually numbered and enclosed in a handcrafted wooden box marked ‘Dubai Duty Free Exclusive’, along with to a signed letter from Alan Winchester.
