Insider knowledge: Glen Grant 39 Year Old 1973 (cask 6582) - Mackillop's Choice whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glen Grant 39 Year Old 1973 (cask 6582) - Mackillop's Choice whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Fruitcake richness, a little furniture polish and malt loaf.
Palate: Agile with crushed mixed nuts, spice and gentle oak.
Finish: Long with more fruitcake and a hint of maraschino.
Overall: Rich and sherried but remarkable light in character.
