    I thought it would be macallan but as mentioned in earlier comments glenlivet seems about right. very enjoyable sherried profile on christmas cake, spices, honey, toffee, stone fruits, very smooth and balanced profile, very good.

  3. SFWC scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Had this dram during the Glasgow Old&Rare show Feb 2018.A very generous Magnuswhisky shared his sample with me and we agreed that this is indeed 1938 Glenlivet. Extremely smooth and dangerously drinkable. Silky, and beautiful dram

    A very well-aged malt from 1938, this was matured for 50 years in Gordon and MacPhail`s warehouses in Elgin, Speyside.
