I've got one of these - remarkably good stuff.
Also got a Gordon & Macphail 1949 Glen Calder blend 40% which I'll be opening for 1940s - 80s tasting soon. (sorry I've got more plugs than Bathrooms R Us) I'll also open G & M 1958 Glen Gordon. Anybody know what this is? Glen Gordon was originally the name to be used for Balvenie - it can't be this, can it?! I noticed somebody trying to sell Glen Gordon from an earlier vintage and say it was Glen Elgin. It could of course be both.
If its no good I'll put in an old bottling of Haig from the 50s. An old dear wanted shot of it but I had to say I'll open it here in front of you in case its water! There were no age/strength statements as the back label had never been applied, it was suspiciuosly perfect fill and clarity. It turned out to be real but my purchase was certainly off the resale list!
The shop has a 1919 50yo Springbank (£14000) the boss said I could taste his open bottle which made me suspicious (I am paranoid) turns out it was merely a 40yo. The manager in the Campbeltown shop dropped and smashed their 'dummy' display bottle, the room filled with the sad aroma of spilt whisky - doh. There is also a 1937 50yo Glenfiddich £5500.
