Murray McDavid

$525.00

Out of Stock

A vatting of two cask finishes, with ages over 33 years.  This incredible Invergordon spent over 31 years in ex-Bourbon before a 18 month finish in Port & PX casks.  The underlying, clean single grain spirit is still there, an excellent canvas to chew on with the rich expressions of the finishing casks to keep the palate entertained. 

Botted from casks #1901555 & #2013160 at 48.5% abv.

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose: oily grain, deep fruits, mocha cake

Palate: coffee, sweet spices, currents and sultanas.

Finish: Port & Sherry goodness lingers for a short while, before opening to a second symphony of aged grain complexity.

Invergordon is a grain distillery in the highlands, which is owned by Whyte & Mackay. It goes into a number of blends throughout Scotland.

Murray McDavid was founded in 1994 by former wine merchant and legend of the whisky industry, Mark Reynier, who named company after his grandparents Harriet Murray and Jock McDavid. Mark was subsequently joined by yet another whisky legend, Jim McEwan: you might recognise these names as part of the team that resuscitated the Bruichladdich distillery in 2000 and subsequently made it the powerhouse that it is today.

Mark's former life as a wine merchant gave him access to some incredible and unique casks and Murray McDavid quickly established a reputation for innovative and extraordinary cask maturations. Though Mark and Jim both have sinced moved on to other ventures, their ethos lives on through the brand's slogan, celebrating "The Art of Maturation". This commitment is made evident in the calibre of casks that they source globally; including bourbon and rye caks from Koval in Chicago, Sherry casks from Bodegas Ximenez-Spinola in Jerez and Port barriques from Caves de Murca in Portugal.
