Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate

Rich gold. Superb mature nose with subtle whisky rancio, mixing
fragrant mango with a little mint, rosewater, and waxiness; there`s
even some custard and a whiff of woodsmoke before sandalwood brings back
the exotic edge. The palate is delicate with an amazingly fresh acidity
that becomes herbal (basil and tarragon). It`s late summer, when
there`s a sense of the year turning, and you allow fond memories to
gently wash over you.

AROMA WITHOUT WATER

After maturing slowly for sixty years the result is a beautifully balanced Single Malt with poise and great complexity. The introduction to the whisky is one of fresh fruit and spices ` aromas of Cox`s Pippins and Granny Smith apples, laced with cinnamon and root ginger. In the background linger subtle hints of lavender and rose petals, all wrapped in a sweet, toffee parcel.

TASTE WITHOUT WATER

A sip of the whisky reveals the age and depth of character. Initially there are hints of cedar wood and freshly cut grass. However, these are quickly replaced by rich, burnt fruit notes with a drying, spicy edge and a dusting of white pepper. A smokiness twists its way through the flavour leaving a slightly bitter, treacle toffee finish.

Bottled in Celebration of the Queen`s Diamond Jubilee, this cask of Glen Grant from Gordon and Macphail is one of the world`s longest-aged whiskies. Beautifully packaged, and sure to become an instant collector`s item. Only 85 bottles of the whisky have been released.
