A long aged bottle from Gordon & Macphail, a mystery single malt simply labelled as "Macphail's". It doesn't list a bottling date but with a distillation year of 1946 it must be topping 60 years old - an incredible slice of history.
A bottling of 1946 Macphail's, Gordon & Macphail's undisclosed distillery range of Speyside whiskies. Distilled just after the end of the war, this was bottled at a healthy 41 years of age in the last 1980s.
A 1946 vintage Glenlivet from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail, who specialise in bottling older whiskies. Distilled just after the end of the Second World War, this has been aged for 40 years before being bottled.
Gordon & Macphail's warehouses are a treasure trove for those looking for old whisky, and this is a prime example - a Glenlivet distilled in 1946. Luckily they make spirit that happily ages for many decades.
A 1946 vintage Macallan, aged for 56 years (so bottled around 2002) and released as part of their Fine & Rare range of vintaged whiskies. The period immediately post-WWII is considered one of Macallan's finest, with more smokey aromas and flavours in the barley as a result of increased peat use for distillation.
