Glenlivet Faemussach. To drink or not to drink?

Glenlivet Faemussach1

We got this wee cutie from Chivas Malts for our birthday last month (thanks very much). We appreciate how rare and collectable this bottle is. But we’ve always said that whisky is for drinking. Nice whisky, like this one, kept sealed in a dark cupboard is like a beautiful girl kept away from the world by her psychopathic father, locked away in a dark cellar somewhere in Austria enduring… never mind, you get the point.

As The Four Tasters Of The Apocalypse gather once more tonight to perform their dark arts, an important decision must be made. Drink it or keep it locked away in a dungeon? Have your say! (click ‘Read more’ for a picture of the whole bottle)

  2. Knees… weak… Mouth… dry… Must… wet… mouth… with…extraordinary… Glenlivet. FYI, jealousy coudn’t be much greater, guys. Although ‘Faemussach’? Were the marketing men polishing off a bottle themselves while committing their name ideas to a dictaphone? I sound like that after too much Bunnahabhain.

  3. As a Taster of the Apocalypse, I vote for drinking!

  4. Drink it! But wait for a sign or an omen to open it ;-)

  5. The reason they sent it was for you to drink and let the rest of us unfortunates know what it is like…………..

  6. It’s a birthday gift. So drink it. Besides, although a rare bird, it’s only 13 y/o.

  7. Faemussach moor above the distillery was the original source for peat used in drying barley at the distillery – hence its use as the name of this release. We have bottled several single casks and give each release a quite arbitrary name in alphabetical order – to date these have been: Atlantic, Blairfindy, Cairn Daimbh, Drumin, Eclipse and Faemussach. Not sure what G will be!
