MOST RECENT

Benriach 1997-2014, Connoisseurs Choice, Gordon & Macphail, 46% abv.

Matured in Refill American Hogsheads and part of the "New Map Label", although other similar bottles have been called "Old Map Label". Nose: green apples, green grapes, honey, fruity.
Palate: woody, slight tobacco, wood becomes more apparent as it remains on the tongue but not too overbearing.
Finish: short, maybe some tobacco and wood, but nothing going on.
Dry glass: tobacco-ish.

Nose is great, but then turns tobacco-ish, and a little tongue numbing. Very unlike the Benriachs I'm used to. Not sure why G&M would try to do Benriach single casks in the 90's either... Grade: C-

And another sensational dram - Glen Grant 1965 bottled by #gordonandmacphail in 2013. Nectar from the Gods! 🥃#whisky #drams #glengrant #nectar #instadram #instadaily #picoftheday📷 #singlemalt

Gordon & MacPhail bottled hundreds of different Glen Grants throughout the decades. This 57%ABV 15 year old was bottled in the late 1970s so it would have been distilled in the 1960s and earlier.

A 59 year old 1951 Glen Grant, bottled by Gordon & MacPhail. Mhhh, what rhymes with Gordon & MacPhail? Holy grail? Much better than ale? Don't drink it all in once or you'll end up in jail...? This vintage malt, boys and girls, is indeed one of many holy grails in whisky land, agreed? #whiskygram #whiskyporn #instawhisky #singlemalt #maltwhisky #whisky #whisky #scotch #scotchwhisky #musthavemalts #glengrant #gordonandmacphail @gordonandmacphail @glengrantscotch

I’m so chuffed we have receive 2 of each of these first batch single malts, I have a feeling they won’t be there for long 😂 #gordonandmacphail #singlemalt #whisky #firstbatchwhisky #blablair #caoliladistillery #miltonduffdistillery #balblairdistillery

GLEN GRANT 1952 by G&M

Such an elegant bottle! Clean and neat, but yet with rich flavours! "The 1952 vintage Glen Grant has always been one of the finest post war bottlings they have consistently bottled" by Jim Murray, 96.5points, 2017

Inchgower 1998-2013, Connoisseurs Choice, Gordon & Macphail, refill sherry butts,46% abv.

Indepedent bottlings of Inchgower are relatively rare as most of its juice goes into blends, in particular Bell's way back when, and Johnnie Walker since the distillery is owned by Diageo now. I also heard it was used in White Horse blends as well.

Nose: sweet, cereal oats and dried fruit, cereal milk.
Palate: woody, tobacco, earthy,
Finish: short, bitter young tofu skin.

Nose is stronger than the Bladnoch, not into that tobacco, old lotus leaf taste though. Pretty bad stuff in my opinion.

Grade: D

✔️Coleburn ✔️Banff ✔️Glenlochy - Old Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice. We did another rare & old mini tasting and this time we concentrated on closed distilleries. A few lower fill levels here but just like last time, all tasted great and I’m just happy that I was able to try a Glenlochy. This challenge would have been a lot harder if it wasn’t for G&M bottling a lot of these now closed distilleries decades ago. #singlemalt #scotch #whisky #rare #old #banff #glenlochy #coleburn #glenesk #dallas #dhu #caperdonich #speyside #highlands #scotland #closeddistillery #connoisseurschoice #gordonandmacphail

GORDON & MACPHAIL line up at malt club last night. If I had to choose I would go with Tomatin but the Caol Ila would be next in line. -

My recent post about @aberlour led to many comments that people are tending to prefer indie bottlings over Distillery ones, citing better quality and price. Let’s put that to the test with a side by side of Mannochmore Distillery.

On the left is a @gordonandmacphail distilled in 1994 and bottled in 2015 from refilled sherry butts. On the right is the official Flora and Fauna release, aged 12Yrs and no info as to provenance.

Mannochmore was built next to Glenlossie Distillery in 1971 is infamous for Loch Dhu. Between 1989 and 1994 the same workforce operated each distillery for 6 months a year until Mannochmore was mothballed between 1995 and 1997. Therefore the G&M bottle represents some of the last spirit from that era - potentially a change in style between the two?

Mannochmore 1994 (bottled 2015) - 46% ABV

Nose - stewed apples, sultanas, almost calvados. A pine forest, oranges, cloves and a bit of custard.

Palate - fresh and vibrant, pears, grapes, cola cubes, lime cordial

Finish - star anise, Garibaldi biscuits
Mannochmore 12Yr - 43% ABV

Nose - whiff of ethanol, mints and butter candy, metallic yet malty.
Palate - cherry drops, brown bread, grass and vanilla extract. Something a bit harsh about the whole thing, and it’s not the ABV!

Finish - the tongue is overwhelmed by heat, of the cheap, vodka kind as the harshness continues. At the end some buttery honey appears, but really as an after thought once the heat has burnt off.
Water makes the whole thing more bearable with banana and tropical fruit, but the heat is still there in the corners.

So, a tale of two different whiskies. Was the 1994 spirit cut better, or has better quality wood smoothed some of the edges? Either way, at £70 for the G&M 21Yr compared to £42 for the F&F 12Yr, once again Gordon and Macphail are not only providing value for money but hands down better quality across the board.

A nicer Bruichladdich than the last ones I've tasted lately. The orange is present on the palate in this one aswell, but also some vanilla icecream. #whisky #whiskey #scotch #scotchwhisky #singlemalt #singlemaltwhisky #bruichladdich #bruichladdichdistillery #islay #peat #peated #peatedwhisky #caskstrength #gordonandmacphail #uisgebeatha #instawhiskey #instawhisky #instascotch #instadram #epic #epicwhisky
