Description

The The Lost Distillery Company Stratheden Vintage Collection Batch 2 is a blended malt that comes close to the single malts from the Stratheden distillery around 90 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.

This distillery was situated in the centre of the old market town of Auchtermuchty in Fife. The earliest records of legal distillation indicate it was founded in 1829, although there is anecdotal evidence of the prior use of illegal stills in the area.

The distillery was unusual in that it only ever had one owner – three successive generations of the Bonthrone family. TheBonthrone’s hailed from the area and according to whisky writer, Brian Townsend, were a “…true malting, brewing and distilling dynasty.” Ancestors of the family were brewers in nearby Falkland in the 1600’s. They also had local interests in baking and milling.

Nose: Dark fruits and rolling tobacco, with a few hints of brown sugar. Subtly old rum-esque.

Palate: Crumbly fudge, a very light whiff of coastal peat, brown bread.

Finish: Chocolate-coated raisins and cooking spices.
