Product Description

The Private Collection showcases Gordon and Macphail's finest and rarest single malts, and this is no exception. A 1978 vintage Glenlivet, matured in a single refill Sherry Hogshead and bottled at natural cask strength. The cask yielded just 319 bottles of fine whisky from this famous Speyside distillery.

Supplier Tasting Notes

Aroma - Sweet sherried aromas weave into layers of roasted hazelnut, soft fudge, milk chocolate, and plump, rumsoaked raisins. Flashes of fresh citrus peel break through and, combined with polish notes, balance the sweetness.

Taste - Smooth and spicy; warm demerara sugar disperses over warming chilli, cinnamon, and clove spice flavours. Intense, thick-cut orange marmalade notes unfold into a lingering charred oak edge.

Finish - Long, spicy, refined, and well-balanced.
