Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 51%
Batch 20/005 is a 1987 Balmenach bottled in 2020 by G&M for their new and improved Connoisseur's Choice range.
This "upper range" of single malts aged 30 years and above was launched to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Gordon & MacPhail's Connoisseurs Choice range.
G&M have also spiced things up and bottled this one at a natural strength instead of the usual 46%. This was matured for 32 years in a refill sherry hogshead that yielded just 208 bottles.
