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

Description of Taste
Tasting note Charles MacLean’s Tasting Notes: Full gold, with khaki lights. Thin but slow-running legs. A dense, leathery nose with traces of dry fruit-cake, madeira cake and tinned pears, and a suspicion of scorched newspaper in the background. After a while a hint of pastry, hard toffee and sweet tobacco. A drop of water increases the pastry note, now buttery, and replaces the fruity notes with waxy green apple. 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 without the salt and warm finish. Like Auchnagie, this is strikingly spicy at full strength; pleasantly mouth-cooling and easy to drink with a dash of water.

Very flavor filled Scotch this is. Similar to my favorite beer, Skull Splitter, is not surprising as they both come from the Orkney Islands. Ordering again.
