After some great events over the past twelve months, to launch this years Whisky Tastings, we will be sampling a few wee drams from a range of rare, hard to find single malts. These are produced by one of the great custodians of whisky from Elgin, independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail. The Connoisseurs Choice collection displays excellent varieties of aroma, mouthfeel, taste and finish. We have selected a few beauties from the vaults that offer different sectors of the flavour map and different regions of Scotland.
Located in the city and Royal Burgh of Elgin, Scotland, is the family owned and managed firm of Gordon & MacPhail. Established in 1895, Gordon & MacPhail has remained proudly independent and family owned throughout its long history.
In the mid-1960s Gordon & MacPhail took the unprecedented step of launching a range of single malts under the brand name ‘Connoisseurs Choice’. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland.
If you fancy sampling a host of fantastic malts from rarely seen, uncommon distilleries, such as Alt a Bhainne and Royal Brackla, this is a great opportunity!
