  1. Chesterfield scored this whisky 100 points Expert Junior

    I was allowed to taste this dream whisky at the whisky fair "The Village" 2018 in Nuremberg and took a sample home with me at that time to taste it again at the right time.
    Now that moment had come!
    Can only say very big cinema! It's unbelievable that a whisky is so balanced after so long.
    Almost no bitterness in the finish after almost 60 years of alleged first fill sherry barrel!
    • Nose
      Gigantic complex and balanced full nose. Despite this age, a bewitchingly wonderful fruitiness paired with pleasant vanilla and caramel notes embedded in fragrant beeswax.
    • Taste
      Full aroma, despite only 40 percent alcohol by volume! Again wonderfully balanced, very creamy, oily mouthfeel. Super pleasantly supple and soft in texture. An absolutely full-bodied delicacy par excelance!
    • Finish
      Towards the "Grande Finale" a wonderful oak spiciness, reminiscent of mild pepper, becoming slightly dry, you feel the age and you become more and more aware of what you actually have in the glass here!
      You are only happy, happy and happy to be able to experience something like this.
      This extraordinary work of art of whisky craft is honored with respect.
      Thank you Glen Grant and thank you Gordon & MacPhail !!!
