Glen Grant 1950 68 Year Old Description
Sometimes the only thing to say is blimey. This is Glen Grant single malt at scarcest. Only 79 bottles of this expression were produced, and it has had an astonishing 68 year maturation in a refill sherry hogshead cask. Gordon & Macphail have been in charge of looking after this one, and only bottled it in 2018, distillation happening in 1950. It has a deep, wondrous amber quality, and a strength of 46.9% abv.
Made from a single cask, this is a truly singular whisky, and deserving of sincere appreciation.
Nose: sweet sherry, sugary caramel.
Palate: luscious rich, chocolate, nutty oak.
Finish: spectacularly long, with variegated layering of flavours.
