The Private Collection is what Gordon & MacPhail is all about - Casks are personally selected by members of the Urquhart family and these are from whiskies of a great age from Scottish distilleries that are much celebrated, little known or closed. The whiskies are only selected for bottling when they are ready to be done so and timing is everything.

Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark Gold.
Nose: Initially sweet with hints of brown sugar, toffee apple with light herbal aromas. Cinnamon and aniseed notes add depth, whisky thick fruit jam, lemon curd and vanilla undertones linger.
Palate: Silky smooth and mouth-coating. Thick golden syrup mingles with stewed fruit, rum and raisin and touches of dark chocolate compliment the delicate sherry flavours. Sweet brown sugar remains, whilst hints of walnut add a slightly drying aspect.
Finish: A refined and humble dram with a black peppercorn and lingering mature oak finish.
