Gordon and MacPhail, St Magdalene 1982

RRP £1,000

Established in 1798, St Magdalene closed in 1983 and the buildings are now apartments, retaining the pagoda roofs, which are now protected, as architectural features. This whisky is full-bodied and has a subtle oiliness with overlying orchard fruits, plums, orange zest and cumquats. Crystalline honey joins the fruit on the palate and the orchard fruits are surpassed by preserved lemon and dried orange wheels.
