A 2004 vintage Strathmill matured in refill ex-bourbon barrels for 13 years. The Strathmill distillate takes centre stage in this particular release, with an abundance of fruit characteristic of Speyside malts.
Passion for single malt Scotch whisky has been at the heart of our family business for four generations. This range is an everchanging collection of unique perspectives on distilleries’ own bottlings, non-chill-filtered single cask and small batch expressions bottled at cask strength and exceptional one-offs. For the malt whisky explorer, it promises a journey of discovery through different flavours, finishes, strengths and vintages.
Style: Exotic and fresh
This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.
