    2006 Gordon & Macphail Distillery Labels Strathisla Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

    Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
    $160. 00 Bottle
    $1920.00 Dozen
    ABV: 43%
    This new-presentation Gordon & MacPhail is part of their 'Distillery Label' collection, but it still sports the retro Strathisla label - appropriate given it's the oldest operating Speyside distillery in Scotland, established in 1786. The bulk of the spirit from Strathisla goes into the Chivas blend so official bottlings are not common. This one was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2019 after maturation in first fill and refill sherry casks.

    Notes from G&M... Nose: Fresh grassy notes, chocolate-covered ginger, triple chocolate cookies and apple blossom. Palate: Fragrant rose leads into lemon shortbread, underripe orchard fruit and a dusting of baking spice. Finish: Chocolate orange biscuits and rich hazelnut. 43% Alc./Vol.
