All about making whisky
Fruity and spicy, this single malt was distilled at Macallan, one of Scotland’s most prestigious distilleries. Matured for 32 years in first-fill bourbon casks, Macallan 1981 is marked by notes of spices, fruit and hints of chocolate.

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.
Of all Gordon & MacPhail ranges, Speymalt is particularly interesting in that it is dedicated to whiskies from one distillery: the Macallan. The product of a long and fruitful collaboration between one of the best known Scottish distilleries in the world and one of the oldest independent bottlers, Speymalt has for many years played the role of a semi-official range. Indeed, this range presents the largest available selection of vintage bottlings, it is even more comprehensive than that offered by the distillery itself; it is even said that, in order to propose small bottlings of old vintages, the owners of the distillery have been obliged, on several occasions, to repurchase stock from Gordon & MacPhail!
