Product Description

This monumental 50 year old MacPhail's single malt was distilled at a secret Speyside distillery on the 30th May 1938.

After maturing in selected oak casks at the unnamed distillery, and more recently at the bottler's warehouse in Elgin, the whisky was drawn from the cask on its 50th Anniversary, Monday 30th May 1988, and bottled by Gordon and MacPhail in this beautiful crystal decanter.

Comes complete in original stunning presentation case with signed COA and stopper, whilst the label illustration takes inspiration from the distinguished latin gospel; The Book of Kells.
