Scott's Selection Glenlivet 1970
For 2 years now, I've been eyeing a bottle of Scott's Selection Glenlivet (distilled 1970, bottled 2003, 52.0% ABV, Port cask matured). Seems to be a typical price ($159.99 USD) near the upper limit I would ever pay for a bottle of anything, but I have no idea what it might taste like. Could be wonderful or could be so-so. I admit to liking an early release of the Glenmorangie 12 YO Port finish, though later releases were not to my liking. And the Balvenie 21 Port finish was, to me, not as enjoyable as the 15 YO (which, if I remember right, used to be at 50.4% ABV rather than the current lower proof, which is still quite nice: had 2 drams of it on Christmas).
So, anyone try this Scott's Selection Glenlivet and have an opinion on it? For the money, I could pick up a few others from among these possibilities: Bowmore 17 ($40), Bowmore Darkest ($30), new Bowmore 16, 1989 ($70), Scapa 14 ($35), Laphroaig 10 CS, 55.4% ($50), Jura Superstition ($30), Balvenie 15 ($45), Talisker 175th Anniversary ($100), and on and on. Thanks! Slainte, Ed V.
