Five Decades celebrates Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm's five decades of tenure with Glen Grant. It is created from a selection of what he feels are some of the most valuable casks from the 1960s to the 2000s, which have seen a variety of barrel finishes.

Tasting Notes

"Smooth as Marvin Gaye's tenor, this whisky coats the palate with toffee, vanilla, honey and espresso. There's a sprinkle of baking spice before the salted cocktail nuttiness of what must have been some sherry cask influence kicks in, with a little lemon and orange zest. The finish is long and rewarding, ending with more of that toffee-coffee richness. "
