Isle of Islay whisky for auction

Founded by 3 gentleman in 1996, Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Gordon Wright. Murray McDavid would be most famous for the purchasing of Bruichladdich on the 19 December 2000 which lay dormant at the time. Murray McDavid was bought over by Aces in 2013 but that wasn’t the end for the company, their legacy continued by bottling exceptional single malts without chill-filtering or adding colour. They really ACEd this market, a term coined referring to “Additional Cask Enhancement” which involved additional finishing of casks. The large majority of the whisky community attribute the success of both Bruichladdich and Murray McDavid to a gentleman, James McEwan who has more than 50 years of experience in the whisky industry. He lead from the front and was distillery and production manager.

Due to a litigation conflict, Murray McDavid were unable to reveal where this single malt comes from but we can give you some hints. The are famous for being the most richly single malts of all Scotch whisky...or so they claim. They reside on the south coast of Islay less than 3 miles from Port Ellen. The dram was distilled in 1987, aged in a bourbon cask and bottled in September 2000.
