Alexander Murray Single Malts Tasting
Saturday, June 23
1 to 4pm
At the Bar
Alexander Murray is a new independent bottler for the Merch, founded by longtime whiskey professional, Steve Lipp. Due to good access to older casks because of his private label whiskey business (supplying for malts Costco’s Kirkland brand single malt & blended scotch expressions), he has come up with a great portfolio of whiskies. These are world class malts at a fraction of the price when bottled by the distillery!
2004 Alexander Murray “Highland” Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch 54.2% abv
This is a rare bottling of Highland 12 year old single malt Scotch matured in ex-bourbon casks. The distillery still remains undisclosed at this time! Aromas of honey, toffee and shortbread cookies move into a palate of fresh honey, rich malt and vanilla. The finish is long, warming with a pleasant medium-sweetness.
18 Year Alexander Murray ” Monumental” Blended Scotch Whisky
A truly exceptional 18 year old blend, hand-crafted with select malt and grain whiskies and blended to create a robust dram with rich, balanced flavors and a silky texture. Aromas of sweet toffee, red fruits and sweet sherry notes. The palate is rich and creamy with loads of butterscotch, palm sugar and almonds. It finishes with warming, rich, complex sherry notes that just keep going.

Excellent as an aperitif. Matured in ex-bourbon casks. Aromas of coconut, vanilla and spice. The palate is light bodied with flavors apple crumble, flaked almond, biscuits. The finish is all butterscotch, vanilla and spices.
