Notes of cherries, tinned pears and fruitcake, the marriage of very rare and old Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, a modern interpretation of the legendary Stratheden Distillery.

The distillery buildings still exist (in part) to this day and are listed. It was also known as Auchtermuchty at some point towards the end of the 19th Century. It was owned by the Bonthrone family who were large local brewers in the area as far back as 1600. The founder of the distillery was Alexander Bonthrone who reputedly distilled until his death in 1890 (b.1798) making him the oldest distiller in Scotland! His Whisky was reputed to be “one of the best”. Renowned Lovers Pool water source – “It is splendid water, and as pure and sparkling as crystal.” – Alfred Barnard

Charles MacLean’s Tasting Notes: Appearance:Full gold. Aroma: A dense, leathery nose to start, then dry fruit-cake, madeira cake (with Maraschino cherries) and tinned pears. After a while a hint of pastry, hard toffee and sweet tobacco. A drop of water introduces pastry made with lard and adds a brown-paper note to faint pears. Taste: Surprisingly sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat. Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but with more fruit. Comment: Similar in style to the ‘non-vintage’ edition, but with greater complexity.

Presented in a wooden display case with a booklet telling the stories of the legendary Stratheden Distillery. Strictly limited availability.
