Glen Gordon 1939 Gordon and MacPhail 50 Year Old
Gordon & MacPhail are one of the largest and most recognisable whisky companies in the world. Although they began distilling at the newly refurbished Benromach distillery in 1998, for most of their history they were an independent bottler. Their labels are recognised by whisky lovers the world over, and their licensed bottlings from distillery's like Macallan and Talisker in the 1970s and 1980s, when the companies were not bottling themselves, are a huge part of the success of those distillers today.
There is no such distillery as Glen Gordon, this is a mystery whisky, produced by Gordon & MacPhail. Sestante in Italy purchased many casks of this from the Elgin bottlers, as well as their Glen Avon over the years. Ernesto Mainardi has claimed that Glen Avon was a Glenfarclas single malt, Glen Gordon is rumoured to be Macallan...
This was distilled in 1939 and bottled at an impressive 50 years old.
