The oldest Glen Grant expression ever bottled
Stunning single malt whiskies that feature spirit from Glen Grant distillery have been a recurring and popular theme in the Gordon & MacPhail story. This release - our Gordon & MacPhail 1948 from Glen Grant Distillery - is the oldest ever expression. At 70-Years-Old, it delivers vibrant notes on the palate, with a complex and rewarding finish that endures.
Initially sweet – vanilla fudge, strawberry, and raspberry nuances develop into thick apricot jam. Waxy polish aromas emerge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel. Gentle and lingering smoky traces complement the balanced mature oak notes. with time, a subtle, fresh mint note unfolds.
Smooth; subtle sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with fresh orange zest and cardamom undertones. A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-warming cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours. Delicate smoky notes endure.
A smooth, long, lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.
