Another sublime offering from the folks at Gordon and Macphail. A 56 year old, 1955 vintage Glenlivet, bottled under the old George & J.G.Smith livery.  Part of their Rare Vintage Collection, this single cask whisky has been matured in a first fill sherry butt.

Supplier Tasting Notes:

Aroma - Rich Sherry and stewed fruit aromas, rhubarb, and prunes, with a subtle touch of vanilla.

Taste - Smoky initially with sweet nutty flavours develop and are followed by a strong fruitcake flavour. A subtle minty edge lingers.

Aroma with Water - Sweet honey with rum and raisin aromas mix with orange marmalade and a touch of cinnamon.

Taste with Water - Peppery with almonds and a subtle menthol note. Apples, redcurrants, sweet toffee, and a lingering tobacco flavour.

Body - Full.

Finish - Long and fresh.
