April 26, 2013 – Single cask distillery bottlings of The Glenlivet are fairly rare, and The Whisky Shop’s 21 UK stores will have one starting on May 7. The Glenlivet Quercus is a 17-year-old malt matured in American white oak and bottled at 52.1% ABV.

Of course, Quercus is Latin for oak, with Quercus Alba being the specific name for American White Oak. However, that name is already in use for a single malt from The Glenrothes. 250 bottles are available exclusively through The Whisky Shop at a price of £199.99 ($309 USD).
