Islay Trilogy 1969 Murray McDavid 36 Year Old Mission Cask Strength
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.
Mission is the company's prestige range, showcasing the finest casks and distilleries in its warehouses. It was launched in 2002 and released across five batch selections until 2006.
An additional "Cask Strength Series" was also released, of which this is a part. It is a blend of three Islay malts distilled in 1969 or before.
They are a Bunnahabhain 1968 matured in a fresh sherry cask, a Bowmore 1969 matured in bourbon wood and a Bruichladdich 1966 matured in bourbon wood.
