Glenlivet Sipping Sessions- 14 year old Cognac Cask Collection


I happened to be part of this amazing experience called Glenlivet Sipping Sessions recently. They released The Glenlivet 14 year old Cognac Cask Collection which I am reviewing in my blog today. Also, I will be sharing my experience about the sipping session and sharing pictures about this wonderful time with industry experts and single malt lovers.  
Glenlivet offers very limited runs of special editions of fourteen year old special casks. This 14 year old is finished in Cognac Cask making it distinctively smooth and pleasant a best of both worlds that is whisky and hint of cognac.
