Since 1968 the Connoisseurs Choice range of whiskies from Gordon & MacPhail has highlighted the very finest in the world of Scotch whisky. In our humble opinion this particular St. Magdalene is one of this finest. Distilled in 1981 and bottled in 1999 and is now rarer than the proverbial hens teeth. The distillery was opened in 1795 but closed down in 1983. The buildings were demolished some years later.
