Introducing the latest arrivals from Gordon & Macphail.

It’s always a pleasure when a new order arrives from Gordon & Macphail.

Amongst the latest batch of arrivals are some truly mouthwatering drams. From great value younger full strength bottlings from the CASK series like the 2006 Highland Park or the 2004 Caol Ila to more extravagant older bottlings such as the Tamdhu 1971 bottled back in 2011 or the 1973 Highland Park from 2009. There’s plenty to choose from and the consistency of Gordon & Macphail’S releases these days means there’s not a bad one in the bunch. Some staff favourites are undoubtedly the 1993 single sherry puncheon of Balblair in the CASK series and the quite staggeringly luscious 1966 Macallan just released under the Speymalt label; ancient sherried madness. Anyway, dig in and have a look through, there’s quite a few to choose from.

A 2006 Highland Park bottled in 2015 by Gordon & MacPhail for their CASK range. This one was matured in first fill bourbon barrels and bottled at 58.0%. A youthful and heavy hitting Highland Park that shows a great balance of soft peat and coastal freshness, loads of distillery character in this one.

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A 2004 Caol Ila bottled in 2014 by Gordon & MacPhail for their CASK range. This one was matured in first fill and refill sherry butts and bottled at 60.1%. The perfect dram for serious Islay fans, this is a massive, blade-like Caol Ila with lashings of peat, sea air, medicine and clean smokiness.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 43%

A 1971 Tamdhu bottled in 2011 by Gordon & MacPhail for their MacPhail’s Collection series. Tamdhu is an often criminally overlooked whisky and can age spectacularly well. All the other aged bottlings of Tamdhu from G&M have been terrific so this one should be pretty special. Expect a huge honey and fruit bomb.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 43%

A 1971 Glenrothes bottled in 2015 by Gordon & MacPhail for their MacPhail’s Collection series. A beautiful aged, sherry matured Glenrothes. Cask from these batches have always been excellent and at this kind of age Glenrothes usually shines brightest so this should be a real crowd pleaser and a sherry lovers dream.

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 53.4%

A 1993 Balblair bottled in 2014 by Gordon & MacPhail for their CASK range. This one was matured in a single first fill sherry puncheon and bottled at 53.4%. As you’d expect from the colour this one is a beautifully earthy, jammy and richly sherried expression of Balblair with the distillery’s trademark salty/fruity lick coming in at the end. A great one.

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 43%

A 1966 Macallan bottled in 2014 by Gordon & MacPhail for their Speymalt series. G&M are the only people outside the distillery who still have casks of Macallan at this sort of age. An incredible sherried beast of a dram that harks back to the great Macallans from around twenty years ago. A real treasure of a whisky.
