A Monumental 18-year-old traditional blend.

It all started in 1911, when a boy was born in North-East of Scotland. His name was Alexander Murray, a true farmer that marched to his own drumbeat. He grew barley and sold it to local Single Malt producers. He loved Whisky and this love came through genes to Steve Lipp, his great-nephew. He established an independent bottling company bearing his great uncle's name. Based in LA, it searches for the next best thing and lucky for us, they are doing really damn well.

This bottle is a real find and a rare gem. Called Alexander Murray Monumental 18YO, it's a truly unique blended Scotch, a robust concoction with rich flavors and creamy texture. The distiller blended select malt and grain Whiskies following centuries old tradition. A hundred years ago, the single malt content was 75% (today it's 25%). It was matured in ex-Bourbon casks for eighteen years and behold, it's a magnificent bottle of golden Whisky, exploding with character. This seductive bottle won a Double Gold medal at the NY World Spirits Competition in 2017.

The monumental flavor profile makes this Scotch an absolute no-brainer.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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).
