Na­ture or Nur­ture?

Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA DINING -

Whisky afi­ciona­dos have a unique op­por­tu­nity to com­pare the mat­u­ra­tion ef­fects of casks of dif­fer­ent oak on the same dis­til­late with the is­sue of the lat­est in the Gor­don & MacPhail Pri­vate Col­lec­tion series, twin de­canters of an ex­tremely rare 1961 Long­morn sin­gle malt. The new-make spirit, some nur­tured in Euro­pean oak and some in Amer­i­can oak, has over the 57 years since its dis­til­la­tion evolved into two ex­pres­sions quite dif­fer­ent in char­ac­ter, colour and nose. Re­leased in Oc­to­ber, just 97 sets of twin de­canters are avail­able at £30,000, with 40 sets ear­marked for Asia.
