Gordon & MacPhail's Cask Strength Range

Posted by on

Gordon & MacPhail's Cask Strength collection captures single malt whisky direct from their skilfully coopered casks. Delivering a full spectrum of flavour compounds - from sweet vanilla and tropical fruit notes to rich toffee, dark chocolate, and spice tones - each whisky in this range demonstrates how the cask and spirit interact at natural cask strength.

During the extensive process of cask assessment, they regularly draw samples from their maturing stocks of whisky. They assess each with the knowledge handed down through four generations of the Urquhart family.

Built up over these generations, each sample is tasted at natural cask strength and their evaluation determines the ultimate fate of the cask: liberate a vibrant vintage for bottling; or leave it to continue maturing, gaining even more complexity.

Each bottling in the ‘Cask Strength’ range has a unique ABV, which is ultimately determined by the casks themselves. Once bottled, it allows you to enjoy the whisky as a perfect cask strength expression, or with a touch of water, releasing even more layers of detail and personality.

This is single malt Scotch whisky, straight from the cask.
