Lot Details


Gordon & MacPhail The Recollection Showcase

The Gordon & MacPhail Recollection Showcase embodies the company’s unique depth and breadth of single malt Scotch whiskies. Housed in a stunning, handcrafted cabinet made of elm and oak by the talented team at Method Studio, Linlithgow, the Lot features five uniquely engraved Glencairn decanters.

Each contains an extremely rare one-off 70cl single malt from a distillery that has been lost or silent for decades. They have never – and will never – be repeated in the history of the Scottish Whisky Industry.

The whiskies, bottled at cask strength, revive the spirit and character of where they were made:

Port Ellen 43 Year Old 1979 55.7% abv (The oldest expression of Port Ellen ever released by Gordon & MacPhail)

Refill Sherry Puncheon

Glen Mhor 56 Year Old 1966 56.4% abv

Refill Sherry Hogshead

Banff 56 Year Old 1966 45.1% abv

1st fill Puncheon

Caperdonich 51 Year Old Year Old 1972 56.0% abv

Refill Sherry Butt

Dallas Dhu 48 Year Old Year Old 1974 54.5% abv

Refill Sherry Butt

The winning bidder and a guest will also be invited to join Director of Prestige and family member, Stephen Rankin, for a suitably unique tasting of the whiskies at Gordon & MacPhail’s home in Elgin, Speyside.
