Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 55.1%
Batch 20/053 is a 1990 Benrinnes bottled in 2020 by G&M for their new and improved Connoisseur's Choice range.
This "upper range" with releases 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 30 years in a first fill sherry hogshead that yielded just 227 bottles.
