Hot! Glen Grant Launches 60-Year-Old Special Edition Whisky

Glen Grant

Renowned Scotch whisky brand, Glen Grant, celebrates its 60-year anniversary with the launch of The Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition which was held at a launch event at Shanghai which culminated with a live auction of The Bottle No. 88 and sold for a high price of 380,000 RMB (approximately). The highest price ever paid for a bottle in the region for the Campari Group portfolio.

The release created as a tribute to the legendary 60-year career of the distillery’s master distiller, Dennis Malcolm is an extremely rare and precious liquid, the spirit has been aged for 60 years, selected from the rare Oloroso Sherry barrel No. 5040 filled on October 24, 1960; bottled at 52.8% ABV and non-chill filtered to retain optimal flavour and aroma.

With a deep chestnut colour, the aroma starts with notes of vibrant Seville orange that give way to an unravelling of rich fruits and nuts including apricot, peaches, raisins, pecan nuts, and a hint of cigar smoke. Rich and fruity in taste with a beautiful balance of dark chocolate layered with treacle toffee, the taste has elements of a liquid fruit cake, finished with long, lingering flavours of figs, dates, liquorice, and a slight hint of smoke.

The Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition

This edition is limited to 360 bottles worldwide, each marked with a bespoke number. Each of the 360 decanters have been made from hand-blown crystal glass, designed by world renowned Glencairn Studio, and are based on the design of the distillery’s unique tall slender pot stills.

Nestled in an elegant presentation case crafted from sustainable walnut, the decanter itself requires over 15 hours of expert craftsmanship for each creation, encompassing intricate details which symbolize the unique aromas of The Glen Grant. Each presentation case has the Master Distiller’s signature engraved within it and includes a Certificate of Authenticity, signed personally by Dennis Malcolm.

The Glen Grant Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition will be available from November 2021 across select markets in Asia.
