Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets topaze.
  • Nose : ample, riche. Complexe, le premier nez propose de la poudre de riz, des fèves de cacao, des agrumes confits, de la noix fraîche et des épices (badiane, coriandre, gingembre). Il devient ensuite confit (reine-claude, pomme, poire) et capiteux (lys, muguet). Gourmand, il nous fait également savourer une généreuse part de tarte aux pommes recouverte d’épices (cannelle).
  • Palate : fine, racée. Elle est tour à tour herbacée (malt vert), camphrée, exotique (ananas rôti), vanillée et florale. A l’instar du nez, elle évolue sur des notes pâtissières (cake au pruneau, vanille-bourbon). Avec fermeté et puissance,son caractère épicé (gingembre, girofle) et réglissé se met progressivement en place.
  • Overall : onctueuse, suave. Elle prolonge la bouche en dévoilant d’appétissantes notes de calissons d’Aix, de citrons confits et de noix fraîches. Toute en rondeur, elle dépose un bouquet de fleurs (oeillet, mimosa) sur de l’herbe fraîchement coupée. La rétro olfaction est réglissée et chocolatée et le verre vide restitue avec chaleur quelques épices (anis étoilé, curry).
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

Located in the heart of Speyside, Gordon & MacPhail have excellent business relations with the region’s main distilleries. Each one has a specific label, originally associated with a semi-official release. Another label enables specialists such as La Maison du Whisky to bottle single casks in accordance with their specifications. Called simply Gordon & MacPhail Reserve, this range has now introduced a different colour label for each production region.
