Speymalt Gordon & Macphail
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Gordon & MacPhail
A 1965 vintage Macallan from veteran independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. Bottled in 2012 at well over 45 years of age, this was aged in a first fill sherry butt. As can be seen from the producer's tasting notes below, this is a classic 1960s sherried Speyside with notes of citrus, vanilla and butter fudge.
