You probably don’t know who Abe Rosenberg is, but if you’ve ever enjoyed a blended Scotch in the United States, you could have him to thank. Abe made a killing – and sparked decades of collecting and trading trends – when he started importing J&B Scotch to New York in the 1940’s. Today, one of his personal single malt casks is finally available to taste, half a century after he first stored it.
A smooth, deep spirit that smells sweet and tastes downright historic, the Glenlivet 50-year-old Scotch by Cask 88 is now available for reservations. After aging in a sherry hogshead cask for decades, this Scotch comes in an engraved decanter and handcrafted, cask-inspired display case. Both its flavor and its flair fit the price tag, keeping this release several levels above top-shelf in any collection.
