The single malt is among one of the oldest Glenlivet released by Gordon & MacPhail, having been aged in its warehouse for over seven decades; it is available exclusively at Dubai International Airport boutiques

Le Clos has released an ultra-rare limited-edition Gordon & MacPhail single malt whisky, which is available exclusively at Dubai International Airport boutiques. From Glenlivet Distillery, the whisky is one of the oldest to be released by the independent distiller, having been aged in its warehouse for over seven decades. Adding an extra level of uniqueness, it is the company’s last ever 1949 cask from Glenlivet Distillery.

Layered with complex notes and full of vibrancy and character, the whisky displays sweet, stewed fruit aromas that combine with fragrant cinnamon, aged leather, clementine, and beeswax polish. On the palate, autumnal spices and fruitcake are balanced by cracked pepper, with undertones of garden mint, dark treacle, and charred oak.

Retaining a cask strength of 49.3%, only 192 bottles of the ultra-rare whisky are available for sale. Le Clos holds worldwide travel retail exclusivity for 30 bottles and will be the first retailer in the world to offer it exclusively to its clients before it becomes available on domestic markets on September 19.

"Dubai Airports is delighted to see Le Clos continue to be world-leading by sourcing and offering innovative and exclusive products that truly elevate our guest experience. We are pleased Le Clos at Dubai International Airport will showcase this early and exclusive launch. Providing access to our guests to these rare and exceptional products continues to be the strength of Le Clos and highlights our joint commitment to create exceptional guest experiences in premiums travel retail," comments Alison Macdonald, Vice President – Commercial Management at Dubai Airports.
