As the second-generation of his family to own the company, he created the Connoisseurs Choice range in 1968 to showcase single malt whiskies that were mostly destined for blending, including his personal favourite, Glen Grant.

The palate offers notes of creamy malt and vanilla along with dried fruits and baking spices.
