Volume: 700ml

A stunning release from Gordon & MacPhail's private collection, this single cask bottling from the now defunct Glen Albyn distillery is only one of 142 bottles produced, a true piece of liquid history. Distilled in 1979 and matured for 40 long years in single first fill Sherry puncheon (cask #3856) this is a wonderfully rich dram. Aromas of juicy black cherries and intense orange peel transform into velvety milk chocolate. Sweet toffee comes to the fore alongside matured oak with fragrant lavender. Creamy on the palate with hints of white pepper and sherried stewed fruits. Sweet baked apple flvaours with autumnal spice - cinnamon and aniseed with a slight menthol edge. More delicate cinnamon on the finish along with baked apples.
