This magnificent 48-year-old Strathisla single malt was released in 2014 by renowned independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail as part of the Licensed Bottling series. The range celebrates the long-standing relationship Gordon & MacPhail has with many Scottish distilleries and showcases historical label designs. In the mid-20th century, the majority of a distillery’s production was used in blends. Back then, Gordon & MacPhail produced the only official single malt bottlings for these distilleries. The whisky was distilled in 1965 and matured in a first-fill sherry butt for 48 years. It was bottled in 2014 at 43%. Strathisla is the oldest continuously operating distillery in Speyside. It was founded in 1786 as the Milltown Distillery by George Taylor and Alexander Milne. In 1950, it became the first distillery to be acquired by Chivas Brothers, and today its malt is still at the heart of all Chivas Regal blends.
