Appearance: Full gold, with khaki lights. Thin but slow-running legs.
Aroma:A dense, leathery nose with traces of dry fruit-cake, madeira cake and tinned pears, and a suspicion of scorched newspaper in the background. After a while a hint of pastry, hard toffee and sweet tobacco. A drop of water increases the pastry note, now buttery, and replaces the fruity notes with waxy green apple.
Taste: Sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat. Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but without the salt and warm finish.
Comment: Like Auchnagie, this is strikingly spicy at full strength; pleasantly mouth-cooling and easy to drink with a dash of water.
The Lost Distillery Company believes it is a tragedy that over one hundred Scotch Whisky distilleries have permanently closed during the last Century. Despite being renowned for their excellent quality malts, these distilleries were largely closed through the effects of war and politics.
The Lost Distillery Company attempts to bring to life the story of famed distilleries and their people, to offer you a flavour of what those whiskies might taste like today if the distilleries had not closed. These are hand crafted whiskies steeped in history with an old fashioned taste.
