About this Murray McDavid whisky

At the foot of the Ben Rinnes Mountain in Speyside lies Glenallachie Distillery. Historically the single malt has disappeared into blends, which is a shame. However,  its new owners are now bottling it as a single malt – which is great to see. With this dram, Murray McDavid is celebrating the excellent spirit in its pure form. It was aged in a single sherry butt for 11 years of maturation and then finished for 2 years in a tawny port barrique from Caves de Murça, Douro Valley. >This UK exclusive is a beautiful dram.

Dean Jode

Dean Jode is Head of Whisky Creations at Murray McDavid. Dean usually starts with single cask whiskies that have been filled into refill casks. He believes the oak cask is the most important factor when creating exceptionally balanced and delicious whisky. So a big part of Dean’s job is searching for the very best quality casks from around the world to re-rack whiskies into.

Dean builds relationships with fellow producers of exceptional drinks by importing their freshly emptied casks for the additional maturation of our ever-growing inventory of Scotch whisky. Using these casks fresh is of key importance. This is where Dean creates not only beautiful spirit colour but more importantly enriches the spirit’s character to create a dram with an exceptional depth of flavour.

Within the traditional whisky warehouses at Coleburn, Dean monitors each and every cask to capture the perfect moment when the nature of the cask has perfectly intertwined with its resting spirit.
