12 in stock (can be backordered)
The first of the five royal malts chosen to embody the main characters in Shakespeare play Macbeth, this very old Glen Grant was distilled in 1965 and aged for over 56 years in a sherry butt. When selecting a whisky to evoke King Duncan, the bottler Elixir Distillers knew it was imperative to find a whisky of great maturity and grace. Glen Grant, with its recognized complexity and exceptionally long aging potential, proved to be the ideal choice to bring this iconic character to life. The palate exhibits all the characteristics of great maturity, with notes of leather, forest soil, and red fruits. Livingstone and Elixir Distillers present the first act of the Macbeth range, a true homage to the play written by William Shakespeare in 1606. This first act includes nine elixirs that will allow us to patiently wait for the four subsequent acts, for a total of 42 whiskies. Each Scotch whisky in this series is based on the profiles of Macbeth characters, with tasting notes written by Dave Broom and labels illustrated by the legendary Sir Quentin Blake. A true journey between Shakespeare quill and the finest bottles that Elixir Distillers can offer.
