Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 59.4%
Released by Gordon & MacPhail in 2021, Glen Grant 1953 67-year-old Mr George Legacy is a celebration of the remarkable Mr George Urquhart, the legendary Gordon & MacPhail pioneer who created G&M's Connoisseurs Choice range in 1968.
This extraordinary Glen Grant was distilled on Christmas Eve in 1953 and bottled in early January 2021 a couple of weeks after its 67th birthday. Cask #4209 was one of G&M's famous pristine first fill sherry butts, and yielded 355 bottles at a frankly incredible natural cask strength of 59.4%. Mr George Legacy was one of the greatest whiskies of 2021 and is a fitting tribute to one of the most important figures in the modern history of single malt whisky.
Please note that Glen Grant 1953 Mr George Legacy is Strictly Maximum 1 Bottle Per Customer. Duplicate orders will be deleted.

Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Darkest Mahogany.
Nose: Soft aromas of beeswax polish give way to stewed fruit and toasted hazelnuts. Subtle orange peel complements rich ginger notes.
Palate: Autumnal spice and ripe plum flavours combine with light blackcurrant undertones. Treacle comes to the fore alongside a light touch of fresh mint.
Finish: A full-bodied and long finish with lingering fruit, spice and a delicate hint of bonfire embers.
