Lost Distillery Jericho
Lost Distillery // Scotland
A sad part of Scotch history is that many distilleries who were producing great whisky had to be shut down for economic reasons. Lost Distillery researches these "ghost" brands and recreates the whisky using a combination of documented evidence, knowledge of the distillery's former environment, and advanced whisky production knowledge as a guide. Jericho Distillery, founded in 1822 in the Aberdeenshire region of the Highlands was closed in 1913 due to the harsh market at that time. Please note, in the U.S., this brand is called Benachie. Everywhere else, it is called Jericho.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The nose is rich, with dried fruits and chocolate. There's also a hint of molasses and leather that goes very well with the slight smoke, typical of these types of whiskies in those days. The palate is spicy but fresh, with cinnamon and black pepper. The fruitiness of the nose keeps on going with sherried notes and even darker fruits. The dram ends with a medium, dry and oily finish. "
