product Details

Dumbarton 1964 Celtic Heartlands 42 Year Old

Celtic Heartlands was a range of bottlings from former Bruichladdich master distiller, Jim McEwan, produced by Murray McDavid.

Murray McDavid were founded in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin and ex-Springbank distillery Director, Gordon Wright. The company bought re-opened Bruichladdich distillery in December 2000, hiring Jim McEwan as Master Distiller. The company was purchased by Remy Cointreau in 2012, with the Murray McDavid brand eventually returning to Scottish hands the following year. Murray McDavid is famed for coining the term "ACE-ing" (additional cask enhancement) in relation to their cask finishing process, something they continue to use to great effect to this day.

Distilled in 1974 and bottled in 2007, this particular bottling is a single grain whisky from the now closed Dumbarton distillery.

Dumbarton is a closed grain distillery, known for using American-style stainless steel columns rather than the traditional Coffey stills. Only using maize (instead of wheat or barley) meant that the spirit possessed quite a heavy character. Rarely bottled as a single grain, the overwhelming majority was used in the Ballantine’s blend. The distillery itself shut in 2002, and is now demolished.
