Gordon & MacPhail 1948 Glen Grant

Filled on June 11th 1948, Gordon & MacPhail launches its oldest from the Glen Grant Distillery. Part of its Private Collection, the single malt was carefully supervised by four generations of the Urquhart family, who have been involved with Gordon & MacPhail since 1938. The Sherry butt is said to have imparted flavors of "dried fruit, orange zest, and cracked black pepper whilst maintaining a long, smooth charred oak finish." 

Gordon & MacPhail 1948 from Glen Grant Distillery will be limited to 210 bottles and will be available at select speciality retailers worldwide.
