The legendary E-type by Jaguar has turned 60 and it’s time to celebrate. The Glenturret is releasing the limited-edition E-type 60th Anniversary Single Malt along with a bespoke book and key ring to mark this momentous occasion. The Glenturret E-type 60th Anniversary Single Malt bears the Jaguar Classic design and is limited to 265 bottles representing the brake horsepower of the launch-spec models. Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno said: “The Glenturret E-type 60th Anniversary whisky replicates on the senses the E-type’s historic 11-hour, overnight 600-mile journey from Jaguar’s Coventry factory to the Geneva Motor Show with legendary test driver Norman Dewis at the wheel. ’The whisky is a minimum age of 30 Years Old and drawn from four casks. Three Oloroso sherry-seasoned European oak butts bring a rich intensity, and a single Amontillado sherry-seasoned American oak quarter cask gives a delicate elegance.”
The exclusive whiskey has a complex nose, sweet and oily with dark fruits, dried ginger, and clean oak. Wood spices quickly accelerate on the palate then brake suddenly. Darker fruits pull forward, liquorice sweeps in, and sweetness flows throughout. The limited-edition offering completely justifies and evokes the E-type’s magnetism and spirit. The E-type 60th Anniversary Single Malt will be wonderfully presented in a custom wooden box and will be exclusively available in the UK at www.theglenturret.com, retailing for $2100.
