A whisky embodying great legacy flows in

New Update


Gordon & Macphail has unveiled a 64-year-old whisky as second edition in the ‘Mr George Legacy’ series. The newly released whisky honours Mr George Urquhart, a member of the second generation of the company’s owning family and the man who helped bring single malt whisky to the world.

The Gordon & MacPhail Mr George Legacy 1957 from Glen Grant Distillery is the second expression to be released as part of the whisky creator’s annual Legacy series.

The Mr George Legacy 1957 from Glen Grant Distillery celebrates Mr George’s long-term approach to maturation, where he was guided by the philosophy that whiskies take as long as they need to mature into the perfect dram. Only 298 bottles of this single cask whisky from Speyside’s Glen Grant Distillery are available.

Distilled on 10th October 1957 and spending its entire maturation in cask no. 3483; a first-fill Sherry butt, the second edition of the Legacy Series was bottled on 9th November 2021 at a cask strength of 56.1 percent ABV.

On the nose, the rich mahogany whisky releases aromas of fruitcake, festive spices, marmalade and treacle. As far as its taste goes, notes of morello cherries, tobacco and garden mint greet the palate, followed by ripe red apple, citrus peel and subtle aniseed. It finishes in an explosion of flavour, with lingering notes of spice, forest fruits and charred oak.
