Gordon and MacPhail, Glenlivet 1978 40 Year Old

From one of Scotland best known distilleries and one of the first to be licenced in 1824, this whisky has a subtle nose of caramel and potpourri. A little oak also shows on the nose in the form of pencil box aromas. On the palate there are spices and sweet vanilla with a tannic structure which is dry.
