Can't wait to turn 42


42 is a great age if this 1962 (42 yr old) Glenmoray is any indication. This is a wonderfully complex dram presented in a spectacular decanter - the Celtic Heartland from Jim McEwan.
"Elegant and beautifully composed aromas of sweet mellow mature oak coated with honeyed vanilla open the treasure chest followed by soft orange, Mandarin rind scents. Notes of sweet dark cola, sugared almonds, banana nougat, guava and passion fruit all rise from the depth, plus a little evergreen mint adding a freshness to this olfactory mind blowing experience Genuinely lovely as it slowly unfolds. Exiting gracefully on rich dark vanilla."(Jim McEwan's Tasting Notes)
