Glenlivet Generation 1940 80 Year Old Gordon & Macphail: A Remarkable Speyside Legacy
A legendary Glenlivet single malt from independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail that was laid down on 3 February 1940 by George Urqhaurt and his father, John, and watched over by generations of whisky-makers until it was finally bottled in February 2020 at 80 years old – making it the oldest single malt Scotch whisky ever bottled. Its eye-catching Glencairn crystal decanter was designed by internationally acclaimed architect and designer, Sir David Adjaye OBE, and comes presented in a stunning pavilion oak case from Wardour Workshops. Aromas of almond oil, sandalwood, gorse flowers and peat smoke fill the nose, complemented by notes of dates, figs, salted plums, dry sherry and menthol that linger in the finish.
