On 10th April 1948, spirit from Glen Grant distillery was filled into our own cask. The same year, King Charles was the first born child of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip - and at the age of three he became heir-apparent when his mother ascended the throne.
Charles is the longest-serving heir apparent and, at age 73, became the oldest person to accede to the British throne following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
With a pioneering approach to long term aging, passed down through four generations of the family, it is only now that this cask is being released to celebrate this milestone moment in history.
Bottled on the 15th December, the same date as His Majesty was christened, this whisky is a fitting tribute to a man who has continually promoted and protected enduring traditions and excellence for many decades to bring about something exceptional.
Nose: fragrant festive spices complement mulled berries with a hint of raisin. Lemon zest comes to the fore alongside demerara sugar and subtle beeswax polish.
Taste: red apple flavours infused with bitter orange and milk chocolate. Subtle smoke develops, accompanied by fresh peppermint leaves.
Finish: full finish with lingering grapefruit and mature oak.
