Glen Avon Single Speyside Malt 1961

Postby Gate » Thu Jul 18, 2002 8:26 am

A friend gave me a bottle of Gordon & MacPhail "Glen Avon" 1961 malt for my 40th birthday last year (this is the sort of friend everyone should have Image ). I have been trying to find out what is actually in the bottle other than "Speyside Single Malt" distilled in 1961 (which doesn't narrow it down much). However, Gordon & MacPhail are extremely coy about it, saying in effect only as much as the label says - that it is from a single distillery on Speyside. Does anyone have any idea what might be in there? I have seen suggestions in notes elsewhere on the Web that it might be Macallan or The Glenlivet.

According to a G&M rep, off the record...

Macallan.

Aha! Thanks v. much. I wonder why G&M were so reluctant to reveal the identity of the dram - don't they already bottle Macallan as such in a "Speymalt" livery?
