What I have been able to find is that Muirhead’s is not a distillery but in fact a brand and a bit of transient brand at that. After establishment back in the early 1800’s under the name Charles Muirhead and Sons the brand has seen a handful of owners. Muirhead’s currently falls under the flag of Tullibardine Highland Single Malt Distillery who purchased the brand in 2008.
Aroma: Soft, sweet and delicate with clean floral notes.
Flavour: Well rounded and elegant. Floral notes with a nutty sweetness.
Finish: Long and elegant with mellow tones.
