This utterly glowing 43 year old Speyside single malt was laid to sleep at the Caperdonich distillery on the 6th March 1979 and bottled for the Gordon & MacPhail's Private Collection on the 10th January 2023.
Charged from refill sherry butt number 1105 at a natural strength 53.1% ABV, this is one of 246 bottles that comes complete with fine oak presentation case.
The Recollection Series are annual releases that offer a unique opportunity for whisky enthusiasts and collectors to enjoy forgotten masterpieces that have been lying in wait at the G&M warehouse.
The distillery was founded in 1898, and was known as Glen Grant No.2. Production stopped swiftly though in 1902. It was reopened again in 1965 to assist with the demand of Glen Grant malt. In 1977 it was given its own name, Caperdonich, where it continued production until it met its sad demise in 2002, before being completely demolished in 2011.
