Lost Distillery Stratheden
Lost Distillery // Scotland
Lost Distillery is a producer that recreates whisky once made at distilleries that have gone silent, using documented evidence and knowledge of their unique environments as a guide. Stratheden was a Lowland distillery located in Auchtermuchty in Fife that existed from 1829 - 1926, owned by 3 generations of the Bontrhone family. With documented evidence about the distillery's barley source, malting practices, water source and maturation, Stratheden lives again through Lost Distillery. This review refers to the "Deluxe" version and not the "Vintage" release.
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.
"This whisky has the classic Lowland Scotch characteristics of malted chocolate, orange zest, pipe tobacco and salty pretzels. It's very soft and creamy with not much spice or heat, and a quick, drying finish. There's not much to it, but it's still a pleasant sipper that has its place at the whisky party."
