Rare releases

A FIFTY year old whisky from Caol Ila Distillery – said to be the oldest Caol Ila bottling in existence – was one of two new additions to independent whisky bottler Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection range.

Gordon & MacPhail 1968 from Caol Ila Distillery was matured in refill sherry hogshead and bottled at cask strength of 52.5% ABV.

The second addition, Gordon & MacPhail 1954 from Glenlivet Distillery, is a 64 year old malt that is bottled at 41% ABV.

The newly redesigned Private Collection range encompasses rare and exclusive single malt whiskies from celebrated, little known or closed distilleries.
