This latest release, is the last of four extremely rare and unique whiskies, each from the last remaining casks from lost or closed distilleries matured within Gordon & MacPhail’s famed warehouse.
The 44 Year Old whisky was distilled in Lomond Stills, which operated within Speyside’s Glenburgie Distillery, before production ceased after just 23 years. The majority of the whisky it produced was destined for blended malts, with the scarcely seen light and fruity single malt becoming a prized addition to any whisky collection.
Gordon & MacPhail 1975 Glencraig from Glenburgie Distillery, is said to deliver aromas of honey, coconut and oak. The taste brings flavours of rich nectarines, white pepper, lime and cocoa beans, with a soft herbal edge. A medium finish follows, embodied with citrus and lingering floral notes.
Commenting on the news, Stephen Rankin, Gordon & MacPhail’s Director of Prestige, said: “While it’s bittersweet to share the last remaining drops of these ultra-rare whiskies, they embody a fitting tribute to 125 years spent in pursuit of perfection. These four releases provide a personal legacy for all who have worked at Gordon & MacPhail over the decades culminating in these exquisite and unique drams found nowhere else.”
Limited to 110 bottles, Gordon & MacPhail 1975 Glencraig from Glenburgie Distillery, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £1,500,00.
