Gordon & MacPhail has almost legendary status in the world of Scotch whisky, with four generations of the Urquhart family heading up the business from its base in Elgin. The Distillery Label range celebrates the long-standing relationship Gordon & MacPhail has with many Scottish distilleries and showcases historical label designs. In the mid-20th century, the majority of any distillery’s production likely went into blends. But at the same time, Gordon & MacPhail released single malt bottlings for these distilleries. This expression, from the Linkwood distillery up in the town of Elgin, aged for a quarter of a century before being bottled for the Distillery Labels series. It seems appropriate to give a delicious old whisky a lovely retro label.
Nose: Hints of baked apple, stewed raisin, and cinnamon enhance rich Sherry influences. Sweet liquorice aromas develop enhanced by light floral nuances. A polished oak edge remains.
Palate: Sweet and spicy; date, prune, and raisin flavours complement warming pepper. Hints of cinnamon and clove add spice. Tangy blackcurrant notes mix with sweet cherry jam and candied citrus fruit.
Finish: A nutty edge balances the lingering oak notes.
