Free Alexander Murray Tasting Tomorrow
With all of the new stuff coming in right now it's hard to keep everyone up-to-speed! Tomorrow night you'll want to come by the Redwood City store between 5 PM and 6:30 if you can. William Lipp, former professional rugby player and nephew of Duncan Taylor boss Euan Shand, will be in the store to launch his Alexander Murray label in California. Surely you've noticed that Costco and Trader Joe's have been doing their own generic single malt expressions as of late. Alexander Murray has been the source of this whisky, providing larger retail outlets with the volume they need to make these deals worthwhile. Costco and Trader Joe's have not been interested in smaller quantities of single casks, so now William has set up base in-state to start peddling these more-niche items.
They're offering some pretty amazing prices for these whiskies. Sure, they're chill-filtered and bottled at 40%, but man are they tasty, and man are they cheap! I'm going to make these available to in-store shoppers first, so if you come by the tasting event tomorrow you'll get first dibs. And I'm going to pass along the aggressive pricing to all of you. How about a knockout expression of Longmorn 21 (that tastes eerily similar to our Exclusive Malts cask a while back) for around $85? How about ripe-fruited, luscious 19 year old Tobermory for the same?
Come taste tomorrow. You'll be happy you did.
