Detailed Description

Legendary bottlers, Gordon & Macphail have released a unique and exceptionally limited collection of discontinued single malts distilled at the Strathisla distillery from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s ranging from 40 to 59 years of age. Showcasing a collective 303 years of wood aging, these remarkable indie selections from yesteryear present an opportunity to experience layers of complexity in single malts steeped in the history and heritage. Strathisla remains the oldest continuously operating distillery in Scotland, long prized as the core malt in the Chivas Regal blends where most of its output goes. Just 75 of these sets are available worldwide. Beautifully presented in a timber case as pictured. One only.

Strathisla 1954 (59 Year Old) Cask 907, first fill sherry butt, distilled May 20, 1954, bottled June 3, 2013. 239 bottles released. The deep, rich mahogany colour of this aged Strathisla is one of the many striking attributes. Sherry soaked rich fruitcake aromas and red berries evolve into a floral edge with a beeswax undertone. An indulgent full-bodied whisky welcomes its visitor to its complexity. The white pepper spiciness melts into the sweetness of ripe oranges and the complexity of stewed rhubarb followed closely by rich dark chocolate whilst a subtle cigar ash note develops.

Strathisla 1957 (55 Year Old) Cask 1719, first fill sherry butt, distilled November 1, 1957, bottled June 3, 2013. 364 bottles released. At fifty-five years old, this full-bodied Strathisla is the personification of perfection. The golden amber malt, matured in a first fill Sherry butt exudes soft aromas of sun-kissed summer berries growing in a meadow of spearmint, the sweet brambles and blackcurrants mingle with gentle toasted oak. Freshly cracked black pepper tickles the tongue and is mellowed by warm rich Sherry influences, juicy grapefruit, zesty orange peel, aniseed and cinnamon linger delicately, long after the malt has been consumed.

Strathisla 1960 (53 Year Old) Cask 2539, first fill sherry butt, Cask 2555, first fill sherry hogshead, Cask 2581, refill American hogshead, distilled November 22, 1960, bottled June 12, 2014. 498 bottles released. This quintessential fireside dram is a delight to many senses. The luscious mahogany liquid is pleasing to the eye whilst the nose delights in festive aromas: plump stewed prunes, raisins, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, dusted in sweet demerara sugar - a veritable decadent fruitcake with hints of rum and treacle. The palate continues to rejoice from a gentle spicy warmth, complete with autumnal fruits with woody aromatic cloves and alluring allspice. Hints of charred oak add an extra dimension of this full-bodied malt, while traces of earthy tobacco and zesty orange peel linger.

Strathisla 1963 (48 Year Old) Casks 565 & 566, first fill sherry butts, distilled February 21, 1963, bottled March 1, 2011. 1,231 bottles released. This full-bodied, deliciously dark amber single malt is delicate and fresh, like a frost covered winter’s rose. Sherry influences, warming applecider, muscovado sugar, and cinnamon aromas develop. Plump raisin and sultanas bring a rich lingering sweetness to the palate; chilli spices develop into a creamy, mouth-coating after-dinner dram with defined notes of dark chocolate and a touch of aged leather.

Strathisla 1964 (48 Year Old) Cask 3532, first fill sherry butt, distilled December 5, 1964, bottled April 23, 2013. 492 bottles released. Sherry defines the nose of this robust fireside dram: dried prunes and raisins with a slight hint of tobacco are complemented by a subtle marzipan.The rich mahogany single malt tastes like a dark fruitcake – packed with almonds, candied orange and grapefruit peel, and raisins –soaked in Sherry. Rich coffee flavours develop on the long and warming dark chocolate finish.

Strathisla 1972 (40 Year Old) Cask 503270, refill sherry butt, Cask 8518, first fill sherry hogshead, distilled on December 25, 1972, bottled June 4, 2013. 921 bottles released. This rich, dark amber single malt, is a sophisticated and full-bodied dram. Initial toasted oak aromas mingle with gentle underlying Sherry notes, reminiscent of rum and raisin toffee. Dark chocolate covered strawberries and stewed apricot flavours are delightfully complemented with a light hazelnut edge. Perfectly balanced with a gentle warming white pepper and fruity finish.
