We’re excited to reveal our latest Limited Edition to join the Marquess Collection, The Murray 2008.
Distilled in 2008, this exceptional dram has been matured in first-fill American oak casks that previously held bourbon and is bottled at cask strength (56.1%).
This new expression marks the tenth of the series, which was launched back in 2016 and has been a firm favourite with Tullibardine fans and collectors alike. The Collection is a nod to historical figures who had the Marquess of Tullibardine title in Scotland for centuries.
While the name ‘Murray’ comes from the second Marquess of Tullibardine, Sir William Murray, who fought for the Jacobites at the Battle of Sheriffmuir on the Ochil hills above the distillery.
Mike Elliott, GM at Tullibardine Distillery, said: ‘We are extremely proud of each Murray we release as part of the Marquess Collection and the 2008 is no exception.
Selected for its unique flavour profile and complexity, we knew this one was special. For us the wood is integral, this bottling has been aged for its full maturity in first-fill bourbon casks and those butterscotch and honeycomb notes are very much there. But there’s a real depth on the palate with a creamy mouthfeel and lingering finish.’
Honeycomb with butterscotch fudge, crème brûlée and molasses, with a hint of tropical fruits and orange liqueur.
Creamy toffee infused with citrus fruits, baked Alaska and syrupy melon, with some baking spices.
Long and lingering with a hint of those baking spices like cinnamon.
The Murray 2008 is available now worldwide in 70cl or 75cl.
