Murray McDavid - Blend - Scotland- 2003
An incredible surround-sound sensation of heavy peat smoke, with toffee, blackened spices, salted caramel, and warm leather. The journey is impressive, from the sweet toffee torn asunder by huge gusts of pepper, the tangy strands of citrus and banoffee pie with baked banana, the apples baked in brown sugar, before a final return to the smoke. A sweet and spicy finish, though the flavors recede fairly rapidly.

Òrdha meas means golden fruit in Gaelic.
Look for a burnished gold hue and mellow aromas
that suggest baked apple drizzled with caramel. The
velvety palate opens on a toffee note coupled with
fiery clove, cinnamon and black pepper, while salted
caramel flows into the finish. This limited edition
bottling is made using a blend of whiskies from all
five Scotch-making regions.
