Malty notes, orange peel, chocolate and peat. 

A marriage of 100% aged Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, no added colour, not chill filtered. A modern interpretation of the legendary Stratheden Distillery.

The distillery buildings still exist (in part) to this day and are heritage 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”. Water was sourced from the renowned Lovers Pool – “It is splendid water, and as pure and sparkling as crystal.” – Alfred Barnard

Citruses, orange peel, sweet malt and touch of peat. It's nice, but a bit raw.

Sweet, spicy. Chocolate, pepper, toffee, honey and fruits with a soft floral line.

Finish
Not too long, sweet, especially caramel. Bit of wine finish feeling.

It's not a complex whisky, but it has an interesting taste in a reasonable price.
