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!
Gigantic complex and balanced full nose. Despite this age, a bewitchingly wonderful fruitiness paired with pleasant vanilla and caramel notes embedded in fragrant beeswax.
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!
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 !!!
