    “Morpheus” (the Greek god of dreams) is a bespoke bottling made for Milroy’s of Soho in London.

    Working closely with their whisky buyer, we created a special bottling of just 176 cases.

    Morpheus - A Visionary Notion

    In keeping with the whisky’s name, we pursued a visionary notion: the

    combination of strong peaty notes with an underlying richness and

    sweetness. To enhance the richness and sweetness of the malt we chose,

    we did a secondary maturation on new American oak (something rarely

    seen outside the dreams of the typical Scotch producer). In the end, this

    comprised 30% of the final composition and gave us just the balance we

    were looking for.

    Availability:Available only through Milroy’s of Soho, London.176 cases (of six bottles) produced.Flavour DescriptorsPeaty and smoky with a sweet maltiness and hints of vanilla cream and citrus fruit.RecommendationsNeat or with water.
