A stunning vintage single malt that was produced at the Glenlivet distillery in 1950 and bottled, having spent over half a century in cask, by Gordon & MacPhail in 2001. This highly collectible Speysider comes in fantastic condition complete with original wooden presentation box.
Distilled in 1953 at Strathisla distillery, this Speyside single malt was matured in a single first-fill sherry butt for more than half a century before being bottled for Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection in January 2019. Sweet aromas of dried fruit, rich sherry and oak fill the nose initially, before hints of candied fruit, orange oil, baking spies and menthol develop. The palate initially offers mature oak spice, developing into notes of autumn berries, crystalised ginger, dark chocolate and aniseed. Whisky Exchange
It is becoming increasingly difficult, almost impossible to find vintage whiskies these days.
Thankfully over the years Gordon and MacPhail have released bottles like this, a great old Speysider distilled in 1955 and then aged 42 years before being bottled in 1997.
This is part of the Gordon & MacPhail Distillery Labels series, which replicates the livery the Elgin-based bottlers used in the mid-20th century when they produced the only official bottlings (under license) for many distilleries like this.
An incredibly rare and beautifully presented single malt from Mortlach distillery, released by Gordon & MacPhail for the Private Collection.

Only 137 bottles of this stunning dram have been bottled for this very rare release.
Dallas Dhu 1969 Gordon and MacPhail Private Collection (Lost Distillery)
A spectacular vintage bottling from closed Speyside distillery, Dallas Dhu. Distilled on 10th June 1969 and bottled from refill sherry hogshead #1656.
1 of only 568 bottles from Refill Sherry Cask drawn from an active, 1st fill Spanish oak ex-Sherry Butt. A deep mahogany colour, with mellow nose feel, not as dry as its predecessor. Bruised apple, tinned pear, and burnt caramel – toffee apple? Oloroso sherry, sweet tobacco, so leather. Develops into vanilla toffee (Werthers Originals; Chocolate Eclairs) with a drop of water. A sweet, burnt toffee taste, then immediately bitter saccharine. Water introduces chocolate and cocoa powder, reduces the other tastes and gives a light menthol aftertaste.
