The Tullibardine Distillery, has announced the launch of the second expression in its Marquess Collection.

The Tullibardine Marquess Collection, is named after Sir William Murray, the 2nd Marquess of Tullibardine. The staunch and lifelong Jacobite was selected for the honour of raising Bonnie Prince Charlie's standard at Glenfinnan, the moment which marked the beginning of the ill-fated 1745 rising.

This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to boast notes of vanilla ice cream mingling with syrupy pineapple and bursts of sherbet lemon. The flavours are said to interweave with hints of malted biscuits and honey, which culminate in a smooth, lingering finish.

The collection’s first release, The Murray (2004), has to date been awarded a gold medal for Cask Strength Whisky and Top of the Category at the Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters, silver in the International Wine & Spirits Competition and the International Spirits Challenge.

Commenting on the launch, John Torrance, Distillery Manager at Tullibardine, said: “As a result of the popularity of the first release in the collection we have already received a lot of interest in The Murray (2005). We hope that customers enjoy tasting this delicious new addition to the growing range of single malts produced here in Perthshire.”

Tullibardine – The Murray 2005, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £49.00.
