Appearance:Dull gold, with very slight haze (suggesting lack of chill-filtration), and good thick legs (indicating good texture).
Aroma:Slight nose prickle. The top notes are juicy and fruity - bruised pears, grapefruit, fresh orange peel. Behind this there is a light biscuit note (Rich Tea biscuit) and a trace of steam engine. A little water introduces estery pear drops, soft apples and oiled leather
Taste: Very sweet to taste at bottled strength, with considerable spice across the tongue and a warming, medium-length finish. Fruity boiled sweets in the aftertaste. At reduced strength it is less sweet and less spicy, but remains fruity, with a trace of vanilla sponge - Eve’s Pudding.
Comment: Spicy and vigorous at full strength; soft and pleasant 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.
