Perhaps some of the last full-flavor Single Malt from the famous Benrinnes Distillery.

Alexander Murray is an independent bottler founded by Steve Lipp in 2004. The company is named after his great uncle who inspired Steve’e love of Malt Whisky, giving him his first taste many years ago. And although Alexander Murray operates out of California these days, they focus on Scottish Single Malts with an honest passion to search and find the rare casks that make up their signature blends and special edition releases.

The Benrinnes Distillery is named after a nearby mountain, opening here in 1835. It is famous for its "meaty" style of Single malt — meaning that there are more sulphur compounds remaining in the Spirit without peat. This is on purpose and they are famous for having a complicated and unique distilling process that maintains a balanced dram without removing the signature savory notes. That process was altered somewhat in 2007, so newer Spirits have a bit less character to fit in better with Diageo’s blending program. Alexander Murray Benrinnes 23 Year Old 1995 was crafted using the old — and we say "better" — method and was aged is ex-Bourbon casks for nearly a quarter century. This exact Spirit took the Gold Medal at the New York World Wine and Spirits competition. Smartass corner Benrinnes sits just across the road from its sister distillery — Mortlach. Both are known for producing "meaty" Speyside Single Malts.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
