In 2016 La Maison du Whisky will be celebrating its 60th anniversary. For the occasion, the company’s staff are proud to have selected this Glen Grant 1956 aged in a first-fill sherry cask. For the last sixty years, a mysterious alchemy has slowly but surely shaped the aromatic and gustatory profile of this venerable single malt. For the same last sixty years, everyone at La Maison du Whisky has contributed, and continues to contribute, each in their own way, to the story of the company created by Georges Benitah back in September 1956.
Profile: powerful and fresh, the nose is characterised by notes of roasted figs and truffles, and evokes rhubarb jam. The palate is elegantly spicy and floral (freesia). Notes of red fruit (strawberry, redcurrant). Tobacco and black olives emerge on the finish.
Single Cask no. 4450 – First Fill Sherry Butt
Limited edition of 218 bottles
