To commemorate what would have been his centenary year in 2019, Gordon & MacPhail is proud to release this superb example of Mr George Urquhart's legacy.
The spirit, from one of his favorite distilleries, Glen Grant, was personally matched by Mr George to an oak cask made to his specific requirements. It was laid down in 1956, the year he became the company's senior partner.
With rich fruitcake aromas and dark chocolate notes, this 62-Year-Old single malt embodies the qualities that made Mr George a master of his craft; patience, depth of character and exquisite taste.
Glen Grant Distillery
Built in 1840 by John and James Grant, this landmark distillery located at Rothes overlooks the majestic river Spey and is thought to be the only Scotch whisky distillery to be named after its owners. Glen Grant draws its water from the Caperdonich well, the same water source used by its sister distillery which was mothballed in 2002. Glen Grant whiskies are famed internationally for their smooth elegance, produced by the site’s unique stills that have an almost square section between the pot and neck and purifiers on the lyne arms. These uncommon additions combine to deliver a deliciously light, fruity and gentle character that mature wonderfully in both bourbon and Sherry casks.
