Description

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.

Taste

The Craigellachie Distillery has an iconic stillhouse that you can’t miss when driving in the heart of Speyside. Hidden behind their distillery are their worm-tub condensers that give this fruity Speyside a heavier quality to the spirit. This is a bottling of three Craigellachie casks, #900365, 900366, and 900367. First matured in sherry hogsheads and then finished for 15 months in first-fill Murca Tawny Port casks. The nose has deep malt, floral fruitiness, and nuts. The taste is lush with winter fruits, toffee-nut brittle and the finish has a hint of chocolate and sweet oak spice.
