Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection 1954 (distilled at Glenlivet), 41%

Price: $15,000 Issue: Fall 2019 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The nose yields baked apples, cherry blossom, marzipan, then blackcurrant cordial and a hint of coal smoke. The palate features cocktail cherries, sponge cake, faint sherry, plus prunes and raisins. The finish is very long; tannic, with musty black pepper. (50 Bottles in U.S.)
