Just like the 12 year old bottling of Stronachie, this is actually not distilled at Stronachie, but is produced to honor the long gone distillery. This replication is actually produced at the Benrinnes distillery. Used primarily in blends and in a few independent single malt bottlings, you will almost never see a proprietary bottling from Benrinnes, though one has been released in the past. This 18 year whisky is aged in both bourbon and sherry casks and released in small batches.

Tasting Notes

"Though the sherry influence takes over on first impression, as you continue to smell and taste the dram, you'll get more earth and medicinal tones. Waxy and full on your palate, dried fruits and nuts continue. The whisky wraps up on the dry side with a dose of wood spices. "
