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.
A blended malt, or ‘vatting’, is a marriage of single malt Scotch whisky from different distilleries.
This release has four single malts from Speyside – distilled, matured, and blended within a little over 10 miles of each other. Single malts from Craigellachie, Glenlossie, Linkwood and Miltonduff.
The Speysiders were married together and then finished for six months in fresh PX Sherry casks from Ximénez-Spínola, in Jerez.
