Murray McDavid the Speysiders 8yo 2009 70cl 46%
The Speysiders is a trio of single malts from Speyside. This vatting is an elegant, gentle blend of Scotch whisky with the beautifully delicate spirit from Glen Moray at its heart. It is supported by bold malts from Craigellachie and Miltonduff distilleries, balanced in equal parts. Each single malt boasts a different level of maturity and cask influence. The Glen Moray matured in fresh bourbon barrels, Craigellachie in a Sherry hogshead, whilst the Miltonduff rested in a red wine barrique from a celebrated producer in St-Julien. Three Speysiders matured in three different styles of wood, harmonised for all to enjoy.
