Gordon & Macphail Wood Finishes

When it comes to cask finished single malts, whisky and red wine might seem like a novel if unlikely combination. Not so for independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail. They’ve established a steady following for their ruby-tinted 'Wood Finished’ range. Caol Ila has been at the forefront, with secondary maturation in casks sourced from some of Europe's finest wine making regions, including Tuscany and Burgundy.  The latest selections shift the focus to the Northern Rhone Valley where Syrah (aka Shiraz) is the dominant red variety. Glen Spey also joins its peated cousins in the collection, which is a single malt rarity in its own right. As the third smallest of Diageo’s distilleries, virtually all of its output goes into blends. All three new editions are currently on offer at Australia's best prices.
