LITTLEMILL 1991

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 19670

Independently bottled single malt Scotch whisky from the sadly departed Littlemill distillery, which was mothballed back in 1992 - this whisky was distilled a year prior to this sad occasion. It was then left to mature until 2015, when Gordon and MacPhail bottled it at 45.5% ABV as part of their Rare Old series.

Bottled in 2015, 486 bottles have been filled at 45.5% vol.

The brand

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Created in 1999, this range is devoted to very old, very rare whiskies, some of which will never again be available (in particular those from the St Magdalene and Port Ellen distilleries). These are, of course, single malts of the highest quality, bottled in ultra-small batches, mostly at 46% ABV, but sometimes at 43% or 40% in the case of whiskies for which the ‘angel’s share’ was particularly generous.
