The Discovery Range


An introduction to Gordon & MacPhail’s impressive portfolio, this range is curated to offer an utterly dependable and consistent choice of their finest single malt whiskies.

 

Each expression sits within the bold flavour profiles of either ‘Sherry’, ‘Smoky’ or ‘Bourbon’, making these single malts the perfect match for the whisky-lover who enjoys exploration through flavour and character.


Speyside


All Speyside whiskies are Highland whiskies; but, not all Highland malts are Speysiders. What is the difference, why the distinction of the Speyside region? The answer is quite simply the River Spey. From its source in the Cairngorms National Park, the river meanders 107 miles, disgorging into the Moray Firth at Spey Bay. Speyside, located in the middle of the Highland region, is also considered by many the heartland of Scotch production. Today, more than half of Scotland’s working distilleries are located in this region.

Geographically, Speyside encompasses the area east and west of the River Spey, partly in tandem with the Morayshire county lines. There are several key towns in region. Forres, to the east, is home to Benromach Distillery and a short drive from Dallas Dhu, a mothballed distillery now transformed into a visitor destination. Westerly are the distilleries of Strathisla, Strathmill, Glen Keith, and Aultmore, all located in Keith. Centrally situated is Gordon and MacPhails, offices, and warehouses in the Royal Burgh of Elgin, also known for its mediaeval cathedral ruins.

Along the River Spey, as world-renowned for its salmon fishing as its whisky distilleries, lie the whisky towns of Rothes, Craigellachie, and Dufftown: combined with these, house the Speyside Cooperage and thirteen distilleries, including Glen Grant and Mortlach.


Miltonduff Distillery


Situated six miles southwest of Elgin is Pluscarden Abbey. Initially a Priory, it was founded by King Alexander II in 1230. The Miltonduff distillery is said to be situated on the site of the Abbey's meal mill and one of the original stones from the Abbey is still proudly on display.

The Miltonduff expressions bottled by Gordon & Macphail demonstrate the extreme versatility of this excellent Speysider: rich spicy, dark honey notes can be found in the Cask Strength Collection of bottlings, whilst The Distillery Labels collection showcases a lighter, more floral side to the distillery.

One other fascinating fact is that from 1967 until 1981, Miltonduff also produced another single malt called Mosstowie, using a Lomond still.

Tasting Notes

NOSE: Aroma Chocolate and sticky orange marmalade transforms into juicy plump stewed raisins and sweet baked apple, freshly cut grass notes delicately balance the rich sherry influences.
