This Crafted Blend is a marriage of two legendary Islay malts, Bowmore and Laphroaig, and a creamy, sweet grain whisky from Loch Lomond made from maize.
Together, all three spirits were finished in a fresh wine barrique from Madeira, giving this dram a lovely orange blush.
This is a favourite amongst all of us here at Murray McDavid; a whisky we are very proud of. Both the Art of
Maturation and whisky blending are showcased in this truly delightful dram.
