Glenlivet 1978 / 40 Year Old / Private Collection / G&M Speyside Whisky

70cl / 53.5% / Gordon & MacPhail - This Glenlivet single malt was distilled in 1978 and spent the next four decades maturing in a single refill sherry hogshead, before being bottled for Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection in 2018. Sweet sherried aromas of fudge, roasted hazelnuts and chocolate-covered-raisins mingle with fresh citrus and spicy oak. The palate is smooth and spicy, full of warm demerara sugar, fiery chilli, cinnamon and marmalade notes, before a long, refined finish full of rich oak spice.
