Notes

Within the Private Collection, Gordon & Macphail are pleased to introduce “The Recollection Series” – rare single malts that revive and celebrate the character of now-closed distilleries.

This 1979 Imperial is one of only 61 bottles drawn from cask #5619.

Sweet honeycomb notes combine with vanilla custard and subtle hint of beeswax polish. Cocoa powder develops alongside pecans and soft baked apple. Ripe red apples intertwine with clove-studded tangerine. Malted biscuit flavours come to the fore accompanied by chocolate-covered hazelnuts and faint Seville orange zest. A full and long finish with black pepper and light herbal tones.
