Glenlivet 70

We’ve just received word of something very noble from the renowned whisky merchants and bottlers Gordon and MacPhail.

The legendary Scottish brand has been trading with Japan for decades and they’ve very generously donated bottle No. 1 of Glenlivet 70 Year old 1940 to help raise money for the Japanese relief effort. The bottle will be sold at Bonhams Auction House in Glasgow, and all funds raised will be given to the Red Cross, who are doing all they can to help the Japanese in the aftermath of one of the most devastating natural disasters in recent history.

The World’s Oldest Whisky – Mortlach 70 Year Old

Mortlach 70 Year Old

Further to our prophetic post last week about Old Whisky, the release has been announced earlier today of the new Mortlach 70 Year Old - the oldest bottled Single Malt Whisky in the world. At a full 70 years old, this is one in the eye for Dalmore, whose recent super-high-end releases have never quite hit this magical age marker.

Bottled by Gordon and Macphail, an award-winning malt whisky specialist from Elgin – this super-luxury whisky has been produced and bottled in exceptionally small quantity from a Spanish Ex-Bodega Sherry Hogshead which was laid down in 1938. Click here to read more...

The presentation of whiskies of this age and calibre is paramount, and this release certainly does not disappoint. Presented in a crystal and Sterling Silver decanter, all housed in a hand-made box made from Brazilian Rosewood.

Whilst we’ve not (yet) tasted this world first of a dram, we can include below tasting notes from Charles Maclean..

Available now, and an absolute snip at only £9999!
