Gordon & MacPhail Glenlivet 1949 Description

An extremely special and extremely rare whisky. This 52 year old Glenlivet single malt was bottled by Gordon & Macphail in 2001, and was distilled in 1949. It spent over five decades carefully maturing in a sherry cask, slowly picking up more and more layers of flavours. It arrives in a splendid presentation box.

The bottle’s label does not hark back to the history of the Glenlivet Distillery as a matter of style; it is, indeed, very much part of it. It lies at 40% abv, and we would like to expressly recommend a wee glass of water to cleanse your palate before this one, within lies an experience that you will not believe. 

Hamish Says

Nose: complex oak & fruit aromas. Palate: array of tannins, nuttiness. Finish: jaw-droppingly elegant, long full-bodied finish.
