Description

The Lost Distillery Company Auchnagie Vintage Collection Batch 2 is a blended malt malt that comes close to the single malts from the Auchnagie distillery around 100 years ago. The Lost Distillery Company started in 2013 with reproducing this lost malts. This is a vintage version between 18 and 25 years old bottled in the 2nd batch.

Auchnagie Distillery existed for almost 100 years, starting work as a remote farmhouse distillery and ending its days as, arguably, the jewel in the crown of a global whisky empire. It had at least seven different owners and was silent for large parts of its life. This was not unusual for small-scale 19th century distilleries, as their precarious existence was often at the mercy of lack of water, lack of money, changes to duty laws and local demand for the product.

Auchnagie Distillery (or Tullymet as it was later known) was located near the hamlet of Tulliemet, approximately 6 miles South East of Pitlochry in Perthshire. The land in this area is rural, a mixture of pasture and rolling hills, with ample supply of water flowing off of the high ground. Local farms in the area (from the 17th century) were built next to the streams, and many generated power by water wheel. Auchnagie Distillery augmented its water supply by constructing a water pool just above the distillery site – the remains of this can be seen to this day.

Nose: Poached fruit, barley sugar sweets, caramelised pear and a hint of leather.

Palate: Robust vanilla pod, clove and touches of aloe.

Finish: Rather long, with cooked apple and Custard Cream biscuits.
