Shipping Rate: 4

Product SKU: 10665

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 50.4%

Another exciting release from Gordon & MacPhail, getting serious with a refill hogshead of long-aged Mortlach for their ultra-premium Private Collection.

This Mortlach Private Collection release is a single refill American hogshead of Mortlach 1978, bottled as a 43-year-old in 2021 at an impressive cask strength of 50.4%, with just 96 bottles yielded from cask #992.

Mortlach is perhaps best known for their monstrous sherry casks, but the distillery's spirit is equally impressive 'naked' from refill casks like these. This will be wonderful.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Sweet poached pears and demerara sugar aromas complement roasted hazelnuts. Notes of dried banana lead to crystalised violets.

Palate: Rich tropical fruit flavours give way to subtle aniseed and milk chocolate. Cracked black pepper comes to the fore alongside Seville orange zest and mature oak.

Finish: A medium-bodied finish with toasted almonds and fresh red apples.
