Every story must end one day. This is also true of the Glen Grant Trilogy project, which has so far indulged whisky lovers with two unique liquors: Glen Grant 1948 66 YO and Glen Grant 1950 65 YO. Both form a part of the prestigious group of the world’s oldest Scottish whiskies. Both liquors are characterised by outstanding quality, unique profile and have won critics’ acclaim. Today, they are joined by the oldest whisky of the ensemble – Glen Grant 1949 67 YO. It definitely makes a good addition to and adequately complements the Glen Grant Trilogy project.
In 1949 the world, divided into two opposing camps, was still healing its post-war wounds. The NATO-founding North Atlantic Treaty was signed in Washington and the Council of Europe was established in Strasbourg. Orwell’s 1984 appeared in British bookshops. In a world that seems so distant today, the Glen Grant distillery produced whisky that was stored in cask number 187. Over the subsequent decades, it was waiting patiently to see daylight again. The world kept changing, political borders shifted, blocs collapsed. During that time, Glen Grant 1949 was slowly building its distinctive profile, relying on the richness of its sherry-soaked oak cask. Today, it reveals the full richness of its blend to whisky lovers, as it enters the market in a limited edition of merely 177 bottles.
