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.

The site of the Miltonduff distillery was previously the grain mill for the neighboring Abbey. One wonders how quickly the monks realized they could make booze, instead of bread.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Miltonduff operated two, "Lomond," stills — of Loch Lomond fame — for a couple of decades, to make their Mosstowie label. While delicious, they were shut down in favor of the better selling Miltonduff's, after a couple of decades.
