About this Murray McDavid whisky

The Speysiders is back with another batch. This is a blended malt whisky made with four single malts from Speyside – distilled, matured and blended within little over 10 miles of each other. Murray McDavid's Team have married single malts from Craigellachie, Glenlossie, Linkwood and Miltonduff. Blended in 2019, the malts have harmonised beautifully. They have added an extra layer of luxury by finishing The Speysiders for six months in freshly emptied PX Sherry casks from their Spanish partners, Ximénez-Spínola, in Jerez. A moreish dram showcasing the splendour of Speyside whiskies.

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.
