Mr George Centenary Edition 1956 from Glen Grant Distillery
To commemorate what would have been his centenary year in 2019, Gordon & MacPhail is proud to release this superb example of Mr George Urquhart's legacy. The spirit, from one of his favourite distilleries, Glen Grant, was personally matched by Mr George to an oak cask made to his specific requirements.
It was laid down in 1956, the year he became the company's senior partner. With rich fruitcake aromas and dark chocolate notes, this 62-Year-Old single malt embodies the qualities that made Mr George a master of his craft; patience, depth of character and exquisite taste.
Rich fruitcake aromas complement notes of raisin and dried fig. Dark molasses entwines with Seville orange peel leading to beeswax polish. Fresh roasted walnut and burnt toffee notes come to the fore.
Sweet initially with bursts of vibrant citrus. A slight humidor edge transforms into juicy sultanas and dark chocolate coated coffee beans. Liquorice toffee flavours develop alongside mature charred oak and mouth-warming spice.
Long and complex; subtle hints of smoke with lingering dark liquorice.
