Gordon & MacPhail 1949 72 year old (Distilled at Milton Distillery), 48.6%

Price: $65,000 Issue: Winter 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Lush aromatic fruit: apple, wild cherry, red apple, orange, aged sherries, and spiced Scandinavian biscuits. The flavor journey begins with a weighted silky mouthfeel offering butterscotch, red apple, and honey, then peel oils, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, poached pear, clove, and apple pie. The sweetness levels dip into cherry, black currant, toffee bananas, subtle smokiness, and a long finish of dried fruits and old sherry. (180 bottles).
