Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or pâle.
  • Nose : printanier, enjôleur. Fin et herbacé, il oscille entre les herbes sèches de Provence et le bâton de réglisse. De fines notes d’orge maltée chahutent la noisette et l’amande encore vertes. De douces épices (poivre et cardamome) enveloppent de leur fraîcheur une note d’iris et de lavande. Des fruits jaunes, blancs et rouges (ananas, pomme Granny Smith, fraise) se parent d’une touche de miel et de cire d’abeille.
  • Palate : de la douceur et de la vivacité. Champêtre. Les foins sont coupés et la terre encore chaude du soleil de l’été libère ses senteurs. L’anis étoilé, le poivre noir et une touche de clou de girofle lui confèrent un charisme fou.
  • Overall : persistante ! Tout d’abord sur les fruits secs, la noisette et l’amande. Les fruits (agrumes, pamplemousse jaune) reprennent le dessus. Elle évoque longtemps après le tabac blond.
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 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.
