Gordon & MacPhail adds two malts to Private Collection

Two new rare Single Malt Whiskies are being added to Gordon & MacPhail’s portfolio of over 300 whiskies under the firms Private Collection label.

Sporting re-designed packaging, the two malts have been personally selected by the Urquhart family, Directors of the firm, for their outstanding character and quality.

Two new additions to this collection include Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection Hermitage Wood Finish 1997 (45%) from Caol Ila Distillery.  Established in 1846 the distillery is hidden in a cove near Port Askaig, on Islay.  After finishing  in Hermitage casks for 30 months the Caol Ila character is laced with rich, fruity overtones – blackberries and cherries combine with the earthy smokiness of the whisky.  Its availability is limited to just 800 bottles.

Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection Côte Rôtie Wood Finish 1991 (45%) from Linkwood Distillery has been finished in  Côte Rôtie casks for 30 months and has developed rich, summer fruit aromas with vanilla and roasted malt notes.  Linkwood Distillery, established in 1821, is located on the outskirts of Elgin. 1900 bottles have been released for sale.

Gordon & MacPhail’s Joint Managing Director David Urquhart said: “The skill and care displayed in the selection of casks to match that character of individual whiskies is abundantly evident in these two Private Collection malts.  These Single Malts provide the whisky enthusiast with the opportunity to discover how the whiskies are complemented by characteristics imparted by casks sourced from some of the world’s finest wineries.”
