A 1953 vintage Glen Grant, bottled at over 50 years old by Gordon & Macphail. This was an important year for the distillery, as they merged with Glenlivet to form the imaginatively titled Glen Grant and Glenlivet Distillers Ltd and commenced the expansion that led to the latter being the second biggest malt in the world.
A marvellous Gordon & Macphail bottling of ancient Strathisla, distilled in 1953 and bottled over 55 years later. Even better, for their most recent bottlings Gordon & Macphail have upped the strength to 43% from 40%. This should be phenomenal for lovers of the style.
An incredible set of spirits from Glenfarclas and Hine. Each was distilled in 1953, the year of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, and aged for 58 and 60 years respectively. The set was released in 2013 and has been nicknamed 'The Auld Alliance'.
