This very special 38 year old Highland single malt was distilled at Glenesk in 1984 and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for their Connoisseurs Choice series on the 8th February 2023.
Charged from refill sherry butt number 2636 at a natural strength 50.5% ABV, this is one of just 103 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 1897 as Highland Esk, and after a few name changes in between (Montrose, Hillside) it was renamed as Glenesk in 1980. It was only in operation for five years though, when it was mothballed in 1985. All buildings, except for the malting, were demolished in 1996.
