Mosstowie 1975 Gordon and MacPhail
Bottled strength 40% ABV
Mosstowie is a long-discontinued single malt that was produced at the Miltonduff distillery in Speyside using Lomond stills. The stills were installed in the 1960s by owners Hiram Walker, who had done likewise at their Scapa, Inverleven and Glenburgie distilleries. The experiment was short-lived, with Miltonduff's Lomond stills ripped out and replaced by traditional pot stills in 1981. Primarily used as a constituent in Ballantine's blends, Mosstowie is rarely seen as a single malt, and sought after when it is.
This one was distilled in 1975 and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail in 1994.
The Connoisseurs Choice label is one of the most recognisable independent bottlings on the market. It was initially created for renowned Italian importer, Edoardo Giaccone in the early 1970s, but became a mainstay of the core Gordon & MacPhail portfolio in 1979.
