Character Goatson
A mysterious blend of Highland malt well-aged and delivered strong and delicious.

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 Glenshiel Whisky is a bit of a mystery. Officially, it doesn’t exist. But insiders tell us that it is a product of the Loch Lomond Distillery northwest of Glasgow on the River Leven. Older bottles have claimed it to be "a pure Highland malt," and the Lock Lomond Distillery sits just across the line to quality as a Highlander. Glenshiel has only been available sporadically, adding to the mystery. Alexander Murray Glenshiel 2003 is an independent bottling of the Glenshiel blend distilled in 2003 that’s bottled pure and strong without artificial colorings because that’s just the way they do things.

Smartass Corner:
Glen Shiel is a picturesque valley holding the River Shiel in the far northwest of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. It was the site of an important battle during the Jacobite era.

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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
