Appearance: Pale amber.
Aroma: A relatively closed nose; clean and fresh, with traces of linen and herbal fabric freshener. Laura Ashley? After a while a light, spicy prickle emerges, topping a fruity/doughy note: apple dumpling, made with suet and dusted with nutmeg. With a drop of water the paper note advances, joined by warm leatherette and a trace of steam.
Taste: Smooth texture, sweet taste and a surprising amount of smoke in the finish - more coal smoke/steam engine than peat smoke. An unusual, antique taste, which holds up well with a drop of water, although the smoky element is reduced.
Comment: Interesting and vaguely ‘old fashioned’, especially without 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.
|The Lost Distillery Company is an independent boutique Scotch Whisky company. We are obsessive about our craft and uncompromising when it comes to whisky quality. Our mission is to create present day expressions of legendary whiskies that belonged to the craft of whisky distilling almost a century ago.
