The Glenlivet Pullman Water Level Route is named for the route between Chicago and New York that featured the original high-speed train. Its cask is an American Oak Hogshead filled in 2002 and is a sweet, creamy whisky that is rewarding and extremely well-balanced.
The Pullman Water Level Route pays homage to a special route operating between Chicago and Grand Central Terminal in New York City. It featured the original high-speed train, traveling at an impressive (for the era) 60 miles per hour and completing the trip in a record 16 hours. A passenger leaving New York could depart at 6 p.m., enjoy his nightcap of fine whisky before retiring to his private compartment, and expect to arrive in the Windy City by 9 o’clock the next morning.
