Smith's Glenlivet 1949 Single Malt Whisky is a very old expression from Gordon & MacPhail's "Distillery Label" series. It was distilled in 1949 and matured until 2001 - not exactly the blink of an eye! This was independently bottled by Gordon & MacPhail and presented with a detailed retro label.
Colour: Deep gold.
Nose: Toffee with peat, red apples, pears, and Sherry.
Palate: Sweet with some notes of oak with a sense of Sherry.
Finish: Long and very rewarding.
