Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 53.8%
A splendid old Glenburgie 1988 refill bourbon hogshead, bottled in December 2020 by Gordon & MacPhail for their top-notch Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength series.
Glenburgie makes very good clean spirit for owner Chivas's blended whiskies, and not a huge amount gets bottled as single malt, but of course Gordon & MacPhail always have a good supply in their warehouses. This 32-year-old Glenburgie cask yielded 134 bottles at a natural strength of 53.8%, which sounds just about perfect for a dram of this age.
