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.

What you need to know about taxes

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
