My local store is taking order for Gordon & MacPhail whisky. The list of options is very long. Many are way, way out of my price range. A few of them caught my eye, however, and I was hoping someone may have some experience with the same or similar bottles they could share. I am fairly new to scotch, but I am really getting into it, and would like to broaden my horizons a bit. I haven't found much with internet searching. Here are a few that caught my eye, but the full list is here (http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=a5743b81789b2491577376015&id=75e485d316).

Haven't tried any Gordon & MacPhail bottlings but the cask strength bottles sound good as well as the Highland Park (that 24 year old sounds pricey at that proof though). Mortlach is extremely interesting from what Ralfy has described (he's reviewed several independent bottlings and all were good).
