Gordon & MacPhail 1981 from Coleburn Distillery
Spirit from Coleburn was traditionally used in blending but Gordon & MacPhail recognised its potential and carefully matched the spirit with our own casks. This Private Collection 1981 from Coleburn Distillery is a rare single malt with a distinct mahogany hue. It delivers a delicious mix of Sherry-soaked fruit, liquorice and dark chocolate flavours, complemented by a hint of smoke on the finish.
