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).
