The Tullibardine Le Murray 12 years Single Malt is a special edition, that matured almost 2 years in red wine casks from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region and was bottled in 2018. The MURRAY is characterized by aromas of strawberries in chocolate dip, oak and buttery herbal notes, combined with a hint of barley. The fruity finish fills the mouth with hints of orange blossom and spicy pepper. (Update: new batch 2018 on sale, batch 2017 sold)

Description

The Murray 2018 – 12 Years Single Malt

Tullibardine – The Murray 2018 – 12 years Single Malt Scotch is part of the Marquess Collection and was named after William Murray, who was once the Marquess of Tullibardine. Sir William Murray fought in the first Jacobite rebellion at the battle of Sheriffmuir in 1715 to bring Bonnie Prince Charlie into his rightful position as King of Scotland. The Scottish history and the history of the clans in this conflict, we meet again and again in connection with the history of distilleries and whiskey production.

It was 1488, when young king James IV of Scotland stopped before his coronation to purchase beer from the local brewery, which was known for a fine beer brewed with the local water source. By 1503, the king had granted them a Royal Charter. It was in 1947 that William Delmé-Evans began converting this original brewery into the Tullibardine Distillery. Upon testing the water from the nearby springs, he knew that he found the perfect location for distilling Whisky.

Characteristic of this noble Single Malt is its mixture of youthful temperament, intensity and a certain finesse-rich maturity. The first Whiskey in the Marquess collection is a 12-year-old cask strength Single Malt, distilled in 2005, matured entirely in first-fill Ex-Bourbon barrels. This special fill of the year 2018 received its complexity over almost two years of additional maturing  in red wine casks from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region of the southern Rhone, which gives it a wonderful fruity and spicy finish. A noble whiskey, which honors the name of its carrier in taste and also with its beautiful design.

THE MURRAY features chocolate-dipped strawberries, which lead to herbal oak and buttery notes, then combine with a burst of barely orchard fruits, filling the mouth with a hint of orange blossom and ending with spicy peppercorn.  (Update: new batch 2018 on sale, batch 2017 sold)

    Aroma: Very fruity – strong peach aroma, as well as. sour cherry or raspberry.
    Taste: Fruity sweet and very fresh, with dark chocolate and spices . Reminds me of mint chocolate.
    Finish: Also in the finish very fruity and lively. Spiciness increases and leads to a pleasant warmth. Very pleasant!
    Comment: I didn’t expect to much of a red wine finish for a whisky, but I am surprised! A great whisky and perfect add for a good variety in my Whisky collection!
