Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 56.8%
Batch 20/056 is a 1987 Strathisla 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 amazing old stocks of Strathisla and this one has been bottled at its natural strength instead of the usual 46% to let the distillery character sing out. This was matured for 33 years in a refill American hogshead that yielded just 174 bottles.
