Description

A 1969 vintage Glen Grant 5 Year Old bought from auction - 75cl 40% ABV.

There are many independent bottlings of Glen Grant at ages 30 years and more, but distillery bottling's rarely get past the 12 years mark.

This bottle dates from a time when five-year-old bottlings were prevalent, in stark contrast to today.

Produced at a time when Gordon & MacPhail was the distillery's official bottler.

There will be many opinions referring to the time period of Whisky Production in Scotland that could be referred to as "The Golden Age of Whisky." There is a time however that without doubt was special and considered by many that period.

The whisky made early 60s-70s with direct firing of stills, the abundant use of Golden Promise Barley, a slower more deliberated approach to production and even a more generous portion of malts in blends of the period ,all lead to a treasure of never again to be repeated whiskies. We refer to this as the "The Golden Era of whisky."

Watch for whiskies from Turmeaus that is identified as such and give it careful consideration when you feel like a rare and special dram
