About this Murray McDavid whisky

Just a walk downstream from Murray McDavid’s whisky warehouses at Coleburn, along the beautiful Millbuies Loch, is the charming Linkwood Distillery. The blissful surroundings of Linkwood are a fitting reflection of the whisky’s elegant nature. Murray McDavid has combined cask types to elevate its traditional Speyside character.

The creation of this whisky has been inspired by the changing of the seasons. The combined finishing casks (Port/PX/Oloroso) produce flavours perfectly matched for autumnal strolls – find a nice spot, pour yourself a dram and watch the whisky-coloured leaves fall to the floor.

Meet The Whiskymaker

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.
