Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 46%
Gordon & MacPhail's splendid Distillery Labels look amazing after their recent revamp and the strength has been upped to 46% - what's not to love?
This Linkwood 15-year-old is another of G&M's specialties - a top class distillery that rarely gets officially bottled as the vast majority of its output goes into owner Diageo's blends.
Thankfully Gordon & MacPhail's long-standing relationships with distilleries mean that they're able to get their hands on a supply of these casks - or even to send their own casks to be filled with new make from the distillery and mature them in their own warehouses. This Linkwood 15-year-old has seen a bit of sherry and should be absolutely delicious.
Gordon & MacPhail
