MORTLACH 50 ans 1969 G&M 50,7%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 57110

This Mortlach, distilled in 1969, patiently aged in a first-fill Sherry butt cask for half a century. As can be seen from the stunning dark mahogany colour, the cask's influence is significant. The bottling is magnificent from every angle. A limited edition of 200 bottles. The Private Collection range features a collection of single malts that are exceptional on account of both age and quality. Matured in unique casks and shaped by time, the whiskies are a credit to the distilleries, whether the latter are well-known, yet to be discovered, or no longer operating. Private Collection captures the very essence of Gordon & MacPhail: enhancing whisky.

The brand

Founded in 1823, Mortlach is allegedly built on the site of a former illicit distillery. It was one of the rare distilleries allowed to produce alcohol during the second world war, right up until 1944. Using partial triple distillation and a traditional “worm tube” condensation system – also used by Talisker and Edradour – Mortlach produces a very delicate distillate. As is the case with many of the distilleries owned by the Diageo group, very few official bottlings of the malt exist outside of the Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts ranges released in the 1990s.

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.
