Sharing the same surname, I was very excited to be given a bottle of Macphail's 25 year old single malt for my 60th birthday.Unfortunately, the disappointment that followed was even greater than my initial excitement.God knows what whisky Gordon and Macphail put in this bottle (they wouldn't tell me when I asked, surprise, surprise), but it's as poor a single malt as I have ever drunk. I was so perplexed that it could be so poor that I have asked a number of other experienced single malt drinkers to sample it. All of them shared my low opinion of this 25 year old offering. A waste of money. Fortunately, someone else gave me a bottle of 18 year old Highland Park, which was a delight.
