The singular, coveted Macduff Single Malt exceptionally well-aged with a fruity-nutty and soothing profile.

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.

Alexander Murray Macduff 17 Year Old 2002 has been aged in refill Bourbon hogshead casks for seventeen glorious years. It really is that simple. You got Macduff’s famous, nutty profiled Single Malt sitting in a cask in the Highlands for a good long time.

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 — about thirty miles east of the River Spey in the Highlands.

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

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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 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).
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
