Looking for value in single malts? Here are three!September 3rd, 2009
Some of you have been asking for me to review and/or recommend whiskies that are really good values (and not just the really fancy expensive ones). Well, here are three new ones from Gordon & MacPhail. I don’t have time to conduct formal reviews, but I have tasted all three on multiple occasions and think they are good whiskies (I would rate them in the low to mid 80s) at a good price.
The MacPhails Collection (Distilled at Highland Park), 8 years old, 43%
The MacPhails Collection (Distilled at Glenrothes), 8 years old, 43%
The MacPhails Collection (Distilled at Tamdhu), 8 years old, 43%
The typical price range, according to the importer here in the U.S., will be $33-35. However, they also informed me that in some markets you might see them priced under $30. A good single malt for under $30? Now that’s value!
