Strathisla 65 Year Old 1953 - Private Collection (Gordon & MacPhail)

Strathisla 65yo 1953 G&M Bottling Note

Extremely well-aged whisky is the name of the game for Gordon & MacPhail's Private Collection, and that's exactly what we have here. It's a 65 year old single malt from the Strathisla Distillery, which was distilled all the way back in 1965! It spent many, many, many moons in a first-fill sherry butt, before being bottled in 2019 at 43.5% ABV. Just 143 bottles were produced, each one housed within a handsome wooden presentation box.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Initially, cascading aromas of dried fruit and rich sherry. Hints of wood polish and candied fruit combine with an intense note of orange oil. Baking spices – clove, nutmeg, allspice – combine before revealing a subtle menthol edge.

Palate: Initial mature oak notes open into flavours of autumnal berries: blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant, and cranberry. Crystallised ginger develops while traces of dark chocolate add complexity. Aniseed notes remain.

Finish: A delightfully balanced fruit and oak finish; nutty notes underscore a subtle but lingering humidor edge.
