Tullibardine releases The Murray (2005)

Tullibardine Distillery has released the second expression in its Marquess Collection, The Murray (2005).

Bottled at cask strength, the single malt whisky has been non-chill filtered and has matured for 12 years in first-fill Bourbon oak casks.

The Tullibardine Marquess Collection is named after Sir William Murray, the 2nd Marquess of Tullibardine. The staunch and lifelong Jacobite was selected for the honour of raising Bonnie Prince Charlie's standard at Glenfinnan, the moment which marked the beginning of the ill-fated 1745 rising.

After the prince's disastrous defeat at Culloden, Sir William paid the price for his loyalty and died in the Tower of London.

Distillery manager at Tullibardine, John Torrance, says: “As a result of the popularity of the first release in the collection we have already received a lot of interest in The Murray (2005). We hope that customers enjoy tasting this delicious new addition to the growing range of single malts produced here in Perthshire.”

Keith Geddes, master blender at the Tullibardine Distillery adds: “As the first whisky to be released since taking on the role as master blender at Tullibardine, it’s fantastic to be able to bring our customers such an exquisite single malt.

“The golden expression maintains the sweet and silky character recognised in The Murray (2004), but brings a slightly novel flavour and finish that we’re confident people will take great pleasure in drinking.”

The Murray (2005) is now available worldwide with an RRP of £49.
