Product details

Bottled to commemorate the 100th birthday of George Urquhart, or "Mr. George," who joined the business in 1933. Mr George began his career working alongside his father, John, who became sole proprietor of famous company in 1915 after James Gordon's retirement and the death of Alexander Macphail. Instrumental to the success of Scotch whisky industry, he championed single malt at a time when blends were still king. His philosophy and legacy live on today as Gordon & MacPhail continues to create the unique range of rare single malt found nowhere else in the world. Serge Valentine of Whiskyfun.com tasted, "Colour: deep amber. Nose: magnificent. The dashboard of an old Bentley (well, works with Austins too) that’s just been redone, natural varnishes and polishes, this faintly miso-y side yet again, a stunning pine-y earthiness (that walk in the woods, rather pines and firs here), an almost unnoticeable touch of Marmite and malt extract, and just one tiny porcini. Bold and subtle at the same time, but that may be the surprisingly high strength..Finish: long, on the same exceptional meady notes, sultanas, earl grey, bergamots, chocolate, and, well, just the whole dictionary. Comments: you’d almost believe they’ve used demi-johns like in Cognac and moved this one to a secret paradise around 30 years ago, but of course they haven’t.
