1936 Gordon & Macphail 'Mortlach' 45yr Single Malt Whisky Speyside
Our friends at Gordon and MacPhail recently gave us access to their library of past releases. Knowing that opportunities like this don't come often, we put a lot of thought into our choices. As fans of spicy, sherried single malts, we decided to grab a few bottles of Pre-WWII vintage Mortlach. Distilled in 1936 and aged for 46 years before bottling, this single malt leads with rich aromas of sherry accompanied by dried fruit and a hint of mint. Ripe tropical fruit cascades across the palate and transforms into barrel spice and cocoa on the long creamy finish. With vintage bottlings of Mortlach becoming harder and harder to find, we don't expect this to be around long. Get it now while the gettin' is good!
Contrary to what the name implies, these guys don't know the meaning of fail. Co-founders James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail, along with their apprentice John Urquhart, developed one of the first whisky brokerage businesses over 110 years ago. Specializing in single malt whiskies from famous distilleries such as Macallan, Glenrothes and Mortlach, they began to select and fill ex-sherry casks with various single malts and mature the whisky for much longer than was customary at the time. They recognized the importance of maturation in the creation of fine malt whisky and realized the truth of the old adage: "the wood makes the whisky." As Jim Murray, author of "The Whisky Bible" once said, "Gordon & MacPhail is a name that makes the heart of us whisky veterans skip a beat." Have a few sips and start checking your pulse.About Gordon & MacPhail
