Lost Distillery Towiemore
Lost Distillery // Scotland
The Lost Distillery Company produces blends in homage to shuttered distilleries of yesteryear, doing so by analyzing 10 factors of production, and blending between five to 10 single malts. The Towiemore was founded in 1898 in Dufftown, Speyside, and was closed in 1931, a decade after blending companies stopped purchasing their whisky due to concerns of lime in its water supply. Towiemore was said to be known for a light, fruity taste.
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.
"Hefty dose of sherry on the nose, with stewed fruits, prunes, peach, and honey. The palate offers citrus zest, spice, oak, and pepper, along with light toffee. Slightly oily. Back palate reveals a layer of smoke, with a touch of salt. Lingering, warm finish with more zest and spice, and an underlying rich sweetness."
