Product Description

The Pride of Strathspey is a brand identity created by James Gordon & Co. (later Gordon & MacPhail) that has enabled them to market and sell Scotch whiskies without disclosing the identity of the responsible distillery. However, it is widely accepted that, amongst other rare and old stock, this legendary 1938 distillation is supposedly a vintage Macallan!

This particular release was bottled in the 1980's, meaning this pre-WWII beauty spent well over 40 years in cask. Supplied in great condition with original timber presentation case - see image for detail.

The Macallan stocks that Gordon & MacPhail have held are just incredible, with many vintage casks from numerous decades going all the way back as far as the 1930’s. Rumour has it that Macallan have even purchased back casks from G&M recently! There is incredible value to be sought in the old G&M Macallan bottlings, such as the 1938, 1940 and the 1950 handwritten labels, which demand much less eye-watering premiums than official distillery releases.
