About this Murray McDavid whisky

Murray McDavid's Peatside captures the power and vibrancy displayed within youthful peated whisky. This vatting combines two fledgling single malts. One is heavily peated, the other creamy and sweet. Together they unite to create a blend with an intense natural peaty smokiness. They further matured these Scotch whiskies in fresh Pedro Ximènez Sherry and bourbon casks. This has created a brilliant balance between peat, malt and oak.

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.
