Product Description

Gordon & Macphail, the single malt Scotch whisky creator, has unveiled a new addition to its ‘Private Collection’: Gordon & Macphail 1948 from Glen Grant Distillery. At 70-years-old, it is the oldest expression from the Speyside distillery ever bottled.  Matured in a first fill Sherry butt, no #2156, this release is one of the 5 oldest ever released age stated whiskies! 

Only 210 bottles are available worldwide.

Supplier tasting Notes -

Nose - Initially sweet, vanilla fudge, strawberry and raspberry nuances, develop into thick apricot jam.  Waxy polish aromas merge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel.  Gentle and lingering smokey traces complement the balanced mature oak notes, with time, a subtle, fresh mint note unfolds.

Taste - Smooth; subtle sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with a fresh orange zest and cardomom undertones.  A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-watering cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours.  Delicate smokey notes endure.

Finish - A smooth, long, lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.
