Glen Grant 1950, 65 years old, cask 2747


from Gordon & MacPhail for Wealth Solutions […]

Wealth Solutions continues the tradition, and this year offers another more than half a century old single malt. I had the pleasure to taste the earlier editions: Glenfarclas 1953, 58 years old Karuizawa 1964, 48 years old Glen Grant 1948, 66 years old Each of these single malts deserves very high marks. This time we have whisky distilled, as before, by Glen Grant in 1950, bottled on 14th October 2015, which is exactly after 65 years of maturing, which took place in Gordon & MacPhails warehouses. Presentation of course, fully natural: single cask No. 2747, natural colour, un-chillfiltered and cask strength. Interestingly alcohol level is 59.3% ABV. This means that the cask had to be well hidden from the angels, who drank little from the original 63.5% ABV (angels share).

    NAS from Glen Grant

    The blog has already hosted Glen Grant, but it was a great collectible whisky - 1948, 66 years old, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for Wealth Solutions. Today something closer to the ground level, that is the basic version of Glen Grant The Majors Reserve, bottled at a minimum of 40% ABV. [caption id=attachment_4059 align=alignnone width=801] Glen Grant The Majors Reserve[/caption] N: surprisingly for a NAS does not have typical impact of alcohol, as it is quite sweet with caramel,...

    From Gordon & MacPhail for Wealth Solutions

    from Gordon & MacPhail to Wealth Solutions

    Recently, I mentioned about the next collectible whisky offered by Wealth Solutions SA from Warsaw. To the wider public the name of the distillery was shrouded in mystery. It was only known that it is a single malt, distilled in 1948 and bottled in 2014, ie 66 years old. Now its all clear, it was about Glen Grant from Gordon & MacPhail. Presentation of Glen Grant 1948 was preceded by a tasting of many single malts from Gordon & MacPhail resources, including Port Ellen, Brora,...

    The Whisky Live Paris 2013 did not lack Masterclasses. I attended in some of them. For non-orienting in the topic I might add that these additional activities are in groups. They may relate to general issues of whisky or a particular distillery, but they are always connected with the tasting. Places are limited, so to avoid disappointment you need to book in advance. The first Masterclass – Whiskies du monde – Blind Tasting was guided by Salvatore Maninno. Blind tasting is a very...
