Stronachie 10 Year
A.D. Rattray // Highlands, Scotland
Stronachie was Highland distillery which operated between the 1890s and 1928, represented by A.D. Rattray Ltd. Though the distillery remains shuttered, the company has replicated Stonachie malts, based on an original sample. The 10 year release coincides with what would have been its 110th anniversary.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The malt is a pale gold color, with golden fruit, floral and spice flavors to match. It's medium in body with a good malty creaminess, honey and tart accents. While it's not the original, this is a fun way to take a trip back in time. On its own merit, it's a light whisky that's a splendid way to start an evening or begin a flight."
