About Alexander Murray Ardlair 9 Year Old 2010 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Alexander Murray & Co. is an independent merchant and bottler on a continuous quest of finding Scotland's finest whiskies. The company, based in Calabasas, California, was founded in 2004 by Steve Lipp, a Scotsman with over 28 years of experience in the whisky industry, who named it after his great uncle Alexander Murray, whom he credits with giving him his first taste of whisky. To bottle a whisky under the Alexander Murray name is a promise of quality, and the brand sources only the best whiskies that meet the Alexander Murray philosophy and standards from several malt distilleries, many hidden away in the most beautiful parts of Scotland.

The company has also been working with trade customers all over the USA, developing and launching their own brand spirits. Lipp feels huge pride for and is passionate about promoting ‘The Water of Life’, and firmly believes Scotch whisky should be approachable and accessible to all. The label has a diverse lineup of products ranging from their extensive Vintage Malt collection, the Monumental blended Scotch range (available in 18- and 30-year-old expressions), The Polly’s Casks bottlings containing Tullibardine single malt finished in Firestone Walker’s Double DBA beer casks, and their signature single malt, the Bon Accord, to name a few.

This expression comes from Ardmore, a Highland distillery with a Speyside twist. Ardmore’s distinctiveness transcends its whisky. Its mighty Victorian distillery is a sight to behold, nestled incongruously amongst the placid Highland countryside, home to the rarity that is the peated Highland single malt. They produce 2 different spirit styles at 2 separate times of the year, Ardmore being heavily peated, Ardlair (or sometimes "Ardless"), the unpeated one. Due to the fact that both are produced by the same distillery, the two styles can be vatted together while still remaining a "single malt". This Ardlair is an unpeated 9-year-old, a vatting of several hogsheads from the 2010 vintage. It's nutty and spicy with gentle vanilla and citrus notes.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
