This latest release of The Glover whisky, celebrates the achievements of “Scottish Samurai” Thomas Blake Glover, and the profound impact he had on the modernisation of Japan in the 19th century. Glover was the first foreigner to receive the Order of the Rising Sun from the Japanese Emperor in recognition of his many achievements.

Limited to just 1406 bottles, this latest bottling is said to have more of a sherried influence compared to the brands first three releases.

In his tasting notes for the new Glover 18 Year Old, Alex Bruce, Adelphi’s Managing Director and Master Blender, described it as: “Both mouth filling and teeth coating (waxy), it’s initially tangy with decadent marzipan and milk chocolate leading to a very well balanced finish warmed by a hint of fresh pepper and the slightest hint of distant smoke.”

The Glover 18 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £145.00.
