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.
