Tullibardine expands Marquess Collection

Tullibardine Distillery has released a new addition to limited-edition Marquess Collection — The Murray Marsala Finish.  

The single malt expression was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2018 at 46 per cent volume. Following traditional maturation in first-fill Bourbon barrels, the whisky has spent an additional year in Sicilian Marsala wine casks. 

The Murray Marsala Cask Finish is the fourth whisky to join Tullibardine’s Marquess Collection, which includes the Murray 2004 and 2005 expressions. The Collection unveiled its first wood finish earlier this year, The Murray Châteauneuf-du-Pape, mirroring the distillery’s focus on experimenting with different casks and wood types.

Keith Geddes, master blender at Tullibardine Distillery, says: “It’s another exciting moment for Tullibardine to be announcing The Murray Marsala Cask Finish — a whisky that pays tribute to our story and continues to experiment with new wood types to create a complex and delicious single malt.

“It’s a superb release, handcrafted by the dedicated workforce based at this small artisan distillery. We have sourced delicious and sweet Sicilian Marsala wine casks, which have been filled with our signature single malt and left to mature for a little over a year. 

“As with previous releases, it is a glorious illustration of the versatility of Tullibardine and our efforts to experiment to produce propositions that suit both new and existing consumers alike.”
