About this Murray McDavid Whisky

This mystery malt comes from a distillery first built in 1798, off the west coast of Scotland. It is a youthful single malt bursting with beautiful, heavy peat. Murray McDavid's mystery offering is named after the distillery's original name, meaning ‘safe haven’. This outstanding malt will put a smile on the face of every peat lover. And, its origin may also surprise you! By using this spirit whilst young, Murray McDavid have captured the best of its heavy, peaty character. It spent the last 6 months maturing in PX Sherry casks from their partners Bodegas Ximénez- Spínola, in Jerez, Spain. These casks have added deeper flavours to compliment this rare, smoky spirit. A Mystery Malt to puzzle, delight and reward.

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.
