Glen Avon 25 Year Old Decanter 1980s / Sestante Import​

A wonderful old bottling of a mystery Speyside by Gordon and MacPhail.

The Sestante import company was founded in the 1970s by Ernesto Mainardi, and he bottled his first single casks under the name in 1985. Alongside his contemporary, Silvano Samaroli, Mainardi pioneered giving his customers a choice of both standard 40-46% bottlings, and cask strength releases from the same casks. Along with his other brand, Silver Seal, Mainardi's bottlings are incredibly sought after.

Mainardi imported a lot of Glen Avon in the 1980s, bottling several of these spectacular dark sherry casks in his famous crystal decanters. He has previously stated that Glen Avon was Glenfarclas single malt, but this has never been confirmed (or denied) by Gordon & MacPhail.
