Discover the epitome of Scottish heritage with the Glenlivet 1956, a single malt whisky that transcends the ordinary, bottled by the esteemed Gordon & MacPhail under the historic George & J.G. Smith's label. This vintage expression, encased in its original, albeit heavily stained, carton and showcasing a label with light markings, remains a testament to the legacy of Glenlivet. With the liquid level into the neck and bottled at a gentle 40% ABV in a 750ml format, this rare find offers a unique window into the past.

Tasting Journey:

  • Nose: Embark on a sensory exploration that begins with an immediate hint of smokiness, reminiscent of hickory wood smoke used in meat smoking, evolving into complex layers of cigars, pure chocolate, and coffee beans, with a backdrop of orange and figs. After allowing the whisky to breathe for 15 minutes, a pronounced aroma of hickory-smoked ribs emerges, enriched by a robust orange note.

  • Palate: The smokiness continues, leading the way to a robust blend of cigars, wood, nuts, and the distinctive tang of blood orange, intertwined with the richness of dark chocolate.

  • Finish: Experience a lingering, smoky finish that seamlessly transitions into spices, wood, blood orange, nuts, and chocolate, leaving an indelible mark on the palate.

Despite its gentle ABV of 40%, this Glenlivet 1956 emerges as a deeply complex and remarkably sophisticated whisky. While some may argue that a higher alcohol content could have unveiled further dimensions, it stands as a real gem within its vintage year, offering an intricate profile that captivates and delights.

A true collector's treasure, the Glenlivet 1956 by Gordon & MacPhail is not just a whisky; it's a piece of history, embodying the rich tapestry of Scotland's whisky-making tradition. Its nuanced flavors and aromas invite connoisseurs on a journey through time, capturing the essence of a bygone era with every sip.

Whether as a distinguished addition to a collection or a rare indulgence for a special occasion, this Glenlivet 1956 promises an unforgettable experience for those who appreciate the depth and complexity of vintage single malts.
