Speyside or peated? Why not both!

Alexander Murray is an independent bottler founded by Steve Lipp in 2004. The company is named after his great uncle who inspired Steve’s love of Malt Whisky, introducing him to the Spirit many years ago ― and also possessing a name with a much more Scottish ring to it. And although Alexander Murray operates out of California these days, they focus on Scottish Single Malts with an honest passion of seeking out the rare casks that make up their signature blends and special edition releases.

The Ardmore Distillery has a unique way of operating where it mostly produces an unpeated Malt but dedicates a fraction of each year to making a peated one. It's a Speyside distillery, but it's also peated! Looks like they've found a way to have their cake and eat it too. The catch here is that the two different juices come from the same distillery, meaning they can be married together and keep their Single Malt label. Clever buggers! Most of their stuff still goes to Teacher's, but this little baby was matured in refill Bourbon barrels and handed over to the Alexander Murray guys.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Deep gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is complex, smoky and, earthy. But it's also restrained, with fruity and floral notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's a campfire smoke extravaganza, but it's also much deeper than that. There's vanilla, caramel, and a pleasant fruitiness in the background. Some spicy oak is also in there.

Finish
Finishes long with the smoky and fruity notes lingering.
