About this Murray McDavid whisky

At the foot of the Ben Rinnes Mountain in Speyside lies Glenallachie Distillery. This lavish malt has been mainly used for blending. But, its new owners are now bottling it as a single malt – a victory for whisky lovers. With this dram, Murray McDavid is celebrating the excellent spirit in its pure form. This luscious Speysider has matured in a 600-litre Sherry butt for 11 years. It was then filled into two freshly emptied Limousin oak casks used to mature Cognac. After a year, the two casks were then reunited. This is a harmonious balance between French oak and fine Scottish spirit. A beautiful dram.
