St Magdalene 1982 / 39 Year Old / Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection
Product Description

One of Scotland’s great lost distilleries, new releases of St Magdalene are increasingly rare. This single refill hogshead was filled in 1982, shortly before the site was closed and sold to developers. It rested for nearly four decades in Gordon & Macphail’s warehouses before emerging as an elegant, aromatic whisky packed with tropical fruit. The nose shows grapefruit, caramel and baked apples while the palate offers pineapple, passionfruit and a herbal side with mint and freshly cut grass.

St Magdalene – also known as Linlithgow – was a large facility in its day, producing 1m litres of spirit each year. Like so many other distilleries, it fell victim to the whisky loch of the 1980s but it has since become regarded as one of the best lowland whiskies.
