St. Magdalene Distillery 1982-38 Years Old-Gordon & MacPhail (53% abv)


Matured in cask no. 2092, a refill American hogshead, 161 bottles produced.

The Gordon & MacPhail 1982 from St. Magdalene Distillery is believed to be one of the oldest bottled single malts from the distillery that used to stand in Linlithgow in the Scottish Lowlands. The newmake spirit was laid down the year prior to the distillery closing its doors for the last time.

A distillery with a rich and varied past, St. Magdalene was initially known as Linlithgow Distillery, before a merger with Bonnytoun Farm Distillery in 1826 led to a renaming. The distillery was built on the lands of St. Magdalene’s Cross Convent, although today all that remains is the malting barn and kiln.

“Our ‘Private Collection’ whiskies embody the expertise, skill and patience that has been passed down over four generations of my family.

My grandfather, George Urquhart, recognised an opportunity to match new make spirit with carefully selected casks at a time when the vast majority of production went into blends. Over the decades he was able to master this art which has become his legacy.

He could never be persuaded to bottle a whisky before he believed it had reached its ultimate peak in terms of quality – a tradition we’re proud to continue today.”

Nose: Waxy lemons entwine with zesty lime and ripe banana. Creamy vanilla custard and almond marzipan aromas are layered with freshly cut grass and floral tones. Aniseed sits in the background.

Taste: Sweet; hints of cracked black pepper and candied tropical fruits give a touch of sweetness before rich dark chocolate truffle centred with salted caramel flavours come through.

Finish:  Light and delicate with subtle hints of toasted malt, aniseed, and humidor.
