1948 vintage whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Gordon & MacPhail Glen Grant 1948

8 1948? Amazing. Has retained a refined almost raffish air and though frail is not overwooded.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

The Macallan 1948 Select Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Paler in colour and lighter in body, but what a palate...great Speyside whiskies once tasted like this.

The Macallan 1948, 51 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
9 Drink it and travel back in time. It is one of the finest malts I have ever tasted.
