Murray McDavid was established by London wine merchants Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Springbank Distillery’s Gordon Wright. They quickly gained a reputation for maturing whisky in interesting casks, especially in fine wine casks. In 2000, the Murray McDavid team set about reopening the closed Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay, engaging the services of Jim McEwan, an icon on Islay. In 2012, Remy Cointreau purchased Bruichladdich Distillery and Murray McDavid. Later, Murray McDavid was sold to its current owners. Today, the home of Murray McDavid is Coleburn Distillery in Speyside.


Built in 1798 and just south of the Cairngorms is one of Scotland’s most visited distilleries – Blair Athol. The spirit from this traditional distillery, which has been a favorite of Master Blenders for hundreds of years, is loved for its full-bodied, Highland character. This is a marriage of four casks: 1909775, 1909777, 1909778, 1909779. These casks were first matured in Bourbon hogsheads and then finished for 20 months in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks. The nose has caramel, almonds, and sweet kettle corn popcorn. The taste is full of baking spices, rich malt, and oaky vanilla. The finish is long with dried fruits and gentle oak. Charles and I really enjoy this tasty whisky!
