COLEBURN 47 ANS 1972 125th Anniversary G&M 62,4%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 58085
Profil: This exceptional cask, filled in 1972 and our last remaining cask from Coleburn which has matured at our warehouses in Elgin, is full of tropical fruit flavours. This whisky is a wonderful example of how careful maturation combines with distillery character to produce delectable single malt.
Coleburn Distillery was established by John Robertson and Son in 1897 in the area of Longmorn just south of Elgin At the time this area was the centre of charcoal production, an influence on the choice of name for the distillery. Designed by the famous Victorian architect Charles Doig, the building was completed in 1899 and production ran until 1913 when the distillery suffered the first of its closures. Production was restarted in 1916 when the distillery was sold to the Clynelish Distillery company formed by John Walker, John Risk and the Distillers Company Limited. Coleburn was an unfortunate victim of the whisky loch of the 1980 ’s and due to it’s out of date equipment, the distillery was mothballed in 1985 The distilling license finally revoked in 1992. Rarely released as a single malt, for much of its life Coleburn produced Speyside single malt to be used in J&G Stewart’s Ushers blend and Johnnie Walker Red Label.

- The brand
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 partnership between La Maison du Whisky and this malt specialist goes back to the early seventies. Initially La Maison du Whisky sold Gordon & MacPhail’s great classics. In the 1990s LDMW established its own cellars and launched a new collection called simply ‘Single Cask’. Every single malt in this range undergoes a rigorous selection process from a large number of samples. As its name suggests, Single Cask consists exclusively of single malts from a single cask that has been bottled without chill filtering. It is thus a separate range in its own right, and is presented in a special bottle selected by La Maison du Whisky with a label adapted from an existing Gordon & MacPhail model.
