Stronachie 12 Year
Peated Single Malt
A.D. Rattray // Speyside, Scotland
Stronachie was a distillery located in the Highlands from 1890- c.1930. During this time, the company that is now A.D. Rattray represented the brand. They have recently sourced a bottle of Stronachie dated 1904 and after tasting many malt whisky samples, decided that this whisky distilled at the Benrinnes distillery replicates the original the best. This is a vatting of several different casks, some older than 12 years to replicate the 1904 bottle.

"It takes just a second in your glass to open up, but once it does, you are presented with a tropical fruit plate. Banana, dried pineapple, and even papaya is detected. This continues gently on the palate along with some honey and heather, but then a splash of peat comes in to play. The finish is a touch bitter, but is a mix of delicate smoke and fruit. Not too shabby for the price if you can find it. "
