3 nye aftapninger i serien Private Collection fra Gordon & MacPhail, blandt andet den hidtil ældste Glen Grant de har aftappet.

Ud over Glen Grant, så er der kommet en Glenlivet aftapning fra 1954 og en Caol Ila aftapning fra 1968.

For lige at vende til bage til Glen Grant, så blev denne produceret kun få år efter anden verdenskrig, nemlig i 1948. et first fill sherryfad blev fyldt og har ligget i et warehouse indtil den 19. oktober 2018 hvor fadet blev aftappet.

Efter 70 år er dette sherry fad aftappet ved fadstyrke på 48,6% alc.

Noter (Gordon & MacPhail):
Aroma Initially sweet – vanilla fudge, strawberry, and raspberry nuances develop into thick apricot jam. Waxy polish aromas emerge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel. Gentle and lingering smoky traces complement the balanced mature oak notes. with time, a subtle, fresh mint note unfolds.

Taste Smooth; subtle sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with fresh orange zest and cardamom undertones. A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-warming cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours. Delicate smoky notes endure.

Finish A smooth, long, lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.


Glenlivet 1954
Denne aftapning har ligget 64 år på et refill sherry butt og aftappet ved fadstyrke på 41% alc.

Noter (Gordon & MacPhail):
Aroma Initially sweet with hints of brown sugar and toffee apple; light herbal aromas evolve into hard candy notes. Traces of cinnamon and aniseed add depth whilst thick fruit jam, lemon curd, and vanilla undertones linger. Aromatic fresh-roasted coffee beans balance orange zest.

Taste Silky, smooth, and mouth coating; thick golden syrup mingles with stewed fruit and rum and raisin. Touches of dark chocolate complement the delicate Sherry flavours. Sweet brown sugar remains whilst hints of walnut add a slightly drying aspect.

Finish A refined and humble dram with a black peppercorn and lingering mature oak finish.



Caol Ila 1968
Den yngste i denne omgang er en 50 års aftapning fra Caol Ila der har ligget på et refill sherry hogshead siden 1968.
Denne er aftappet ved fadstyrke på 52,5% alc.

Noter (Gordon & MacPhail):
Aroma Delicate wisps of peat smoke transforms aromas of honey-cured meats and vanilla pods. Notes of fruitcake laden with nuts, raisins, and plump sultanas develop. A hint of menthol runs throughout. Undertones of zesty citrus and aromatic lemongrass linger.

Taste A refined single malt. Subtle yet warming spice opens into raspberry, cranberry, and sweet baked apple flavours. Thick cut Seville orange marmalade and gentle Sherry influences develop with time. Mature oak notes add a slightly drying character.

Finish A lingering finish of smouldering bonfire embers entwined with lemon zest and charred oak.
