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.


This distillery is in the heart of the Speyside region, tucked into the Ben Rinnes Mountain. A revived distillery that was always known for producing a rich malt that has mainly been used for blending but the new owners are showing it off as a single malt more often than not. This is a marriage of two casks, #s 1910865 and 1920865. It was first matured in a sherry butt and then finished in first-fill, Limousin Oak Cognac casks for a year. The nose is buttery oranges with milk chocolate. The palate has creamy malt notes, fruity toffee, and oak spice. The finish is gentle fruits and mellow vanilla.
