Private Collection 1956 from Linkwood Distillery is a truly beautiful and refined single malt Scotch whisky.
Cask 20, a first fill European Oak Sherry hogshead, was filled during the early days of 1956. The cask was stowed in Linkwood Distillery's Warehouse No.5 until it was moved to our Elgin bond on 18th June 1968. Matured for a total of sixty years, the cask was emptied on the 22nd June 2016 and fifty-six decanters were carefully filled. This was the last Linkwood cask from the 1950s in our inventory.
This single malt is a true celebration of what Gordon & MacPhail represents: our passion for whisky, our patience, and our relationships, forged over generations.
Every detail is perfect: the craftsmanship of the specially-designed box, the elegance of the glassware, and the exquisite character of the precious, mature single malt whisky residing within.
