This single cask was distilled on the 30th of August 1978, aged in a refill sherry hoshead and bottled at natural cask strength by Gordon and MacPhail for their Private Collection.
This collection was created to hold all the most unique, exceptional and closed distilleries in Scotland. Every cask in the collection is carefully chosen by family members and bottled at cask strength.
Stewed raisin aromas combine with orange peel and faint notes of beeswax polish, baked spiced apples give way to vanilla pod and soft nutmeg.
Cinnamon spice flavours are followed by marmalade ands toasted almonds. Roasted coffee beans come to the fore, leading to Morello cherry and hazelnuts.
A long finish with sultanas and a sweet sherry influence.
