An old bottling from one of Speyside's most popular distilleries by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail under their Smith's label. Distilled in 1940, this was bottled in 1982 at around 42 years of age.
A 1940 vintage Old Elgin malt from an undisclosed Highland distillery released by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail with their Book of Kells style label. "G&M" are specialists in bottling very old whiskies and left this for 40 years before releasing this one in the early 1980s.
The second release of Gordon & Macphail's incredible 70 year old Glenlivet. This is the remaining whisky drawn from cask 339, filled in 1940, and bottled in a teardrop shaped crystal decanter at full cask strength of 45.95%. A slice of liquid history.
A very rare 1940 vintage Macallan, this whisky was first bottled in 1977 and supply has been eked out with tiny allocations in the last few years since being introduced as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series.
After 2010's 1938 Mortlach, the second of Gordon & Macphail's 'Generations' series has arrived - a 1940 Glenlivet which, like the Mortlach, has been bottled at 70 years old, making it the joint-oldest whisky ever released. Packaged in the same beautiful teardrop crystal decanter, this is one of the whisky events of the year.
