1949 Gordon & Macphail 'Glen Grant' 39yr Single Malt Whisky Speyside
More From Gordon & MacPhail:
The single malts that make up the Gordon & MacPhail "Rare Vintage" series are nothing short of brilliant. Throughout their long history they've had the opportunity to test the limits of letting whisky age longer than many other secondary bottlers, they also have the unique chance to buy the spirit off the still and age it from day one. This is another masterpiece in their collection. Floral notes, fresh coffee bean and a hint of mint lead to a wonderful Sherry-like complexity on the palate with raisin, summer fruit, smoke, and toasted malt. You won't find another 40+ year old whisky at this price tag that is in the same solar system. Very limited availability.
Contrary to what the name implies, these guys don't know the meaning of fail. Co-founders James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail, along with their apprentice John Urquhart, developed one of the first whisky brokerage businesses over 110 years ago. Specializing in single malt whiskies from famous distilleries such as Macallan, Glenrothes and Mortlach, they began to select and fill ex-sherry casks with various single malts and mature the whisky for much longer than was customary at the time. They recognized the importance of maturation in the creation of fine malt whisky and realized the truth of the old adage: "the wood makes the whisky." As Jim Murray, author of "The Whisky Bible" once said, "Gordon & MacPhail is a name that makes the heart of us whisky veterans skip a beat." Have a few sips and start checking your pulse.About Gordon & MacPhail
