Murray McDavid - Crafted Blend

What they say:

Crafted Blend

ÒRDHA • MEAS 2003 Autumn 2015

Our Òrdha Meas blend has been crafted from first-class single malt and single grain whiskies including Highland Park, Glenrothes, Glengoyne, Port Dundas and Cameronbridge. After marrying, these spirits have been allowed to mature further at our traditional dunnage warehouses. The result is bright, tangy citrus elements that make themselves apparent from the first in this delightfully dynamic whisky. Deeper on the nose, the mellifluousness of honey coated fruits and toasty biscuit scents drizzled with creamy vanilla and the slightest touch of cereal and currants. The tongue is enveloped with more honey and velvety vanilla, finishing with soft oak and the gentle touch of cloves. The art of whisky blending at its best.

Toffee/plastic coated fruit, barley, citrus, vanilla, short sharp hits, banana & strawberry, spices coming through


Caramel sauce, lemon juice, butterscotch, marmalade, brown toast, honey, yellow grapefruit, healthy breakfast!?
