A wonderful, bright, summery dram from the Macduff distillery.

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 Macduff Distillery has only been around since 1962, but it has been producing coveted Single Malt since day one. In the past it was called the Glen Deveron Distillery because it sits near the mouth of the River Deveron — a sister river to the more famous Spey in the Highlands. Alexander Murray Macduff 14 Year Old 2003 is comprised of a few select casks saved from the blender’s vat. It’s been aged fourteen years and bottled strong with no artificial complications for a light, fruit-forward dram with a lightly sweet granola and musli tone. Single Malt bottlings from Macduff can be very hard to find.


Smartass Corner:
Macduff was a legendary hero-king of Scotland. He appears in fictionalized form as the avenging hero in the play Macbeth.

Ryan,
Smooth, a bit buttery. Hint of tropical/citrus fruit? Enjoyable.

Thomas,
We love Flaviar! My first 3-dram sampling was the Alexander Murray. This last sample wasn't bad. But on the flavor profile, I'm afraid Flaviar is going to have to reprint their circular insert. Anyone that doesn't immediately pull pine from the start is following the masses and not their senses. Nonetheless, I loved every minute of this trio sampling. Looking forward to the next one soon.
