A rare independent Single Malt from Miltonduff that hits all the right notes.

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.

Even if you have’t had a dram of Miltonduff Single Malt before, we guarantee that you have tasted it. That’s because Miltonduff — located in Speyside — is owned by Spirits giant Pernod Ricard and nearly all production goes into blends. In fact, Miltonduff is the fingerprint malt in Ballantine’s — an industry leader.

Every once in a while there’s an official Miltonduff Single Malt release sponsored by Ballantine’s, but we usually have to depend on independent bottlers to get our fix. Alexander Murray Miltonduff 17 Year Old is an un-peated, 2001 vintage that has been aged in American oak casks until it’s darn near perfect.

Smartass Corner:
Even though premium Scotch blends combine dozens of Whiskies to formulate their flavor profiles, most have one or two primary Spirits that set the tone. In the industry these are called "Fingerprint Malts." For Johnnie Walker Red, it’s Cardhu. For Chivas Regal, it’s Glenlivet.

Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, complex, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a complex life leads to a long & warming death with a hint of honeysuckle.

RAFAEL,
I enjoyed the 23 year old the most in my tasting box but the finish here is pleasant and warm. The notes in the description are on point. If you like peach, this is for you.

Evin,
An enjoyable Scotch that was my second choice out of the sampler (behind the 23yo). Got more peach than was indicated in the profile, but was definitely enjoyable.

David,
I agree with Jasson. The peach is very upfront and I'm finding the mint at the finish. I really like this. Very light and refreshing.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
The tasting notes on this page nail it. It's light, refreshing and warm. Fruit and sweet come out swinging, and the finish is long and pleasant.
