TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Polished bronze.

On the Nose: Cooked berries, figs, cinnamon and a hint of vanilla provides a wonderfully complex nose.

The Finish: White pepper and cedar, with a final touch of blueberry finally gives way for a uniquely old-style whisky taste.

Description William Smith established the distillery in 1822, in a location that was perfect for small scale whisky production with local barley and hills blessed with peat. Its remote location helped the distillery remain concealed and difficult for the excise-men to monitor before distillation became legal. In the 1870’s sherry casks became increasingly popular in the whisky industry – evolving from a means of transporting spirit, towards a technique of maturing whisky for those who could afford to buy it. In 1870 sherry matured whisky from Jericho was advertised as a drink for the discerning gentleman traveler.
Origin Styled on the original Highland distillery in Nether Jericho, Aberdeenshire
Volume, ABV 700ml, 46% ABV

Usually I drink MaCallan or Highland Park or more local brands when the occasion demands, however actually living in what was the old distillary manager's cottage at Jericho I thought I'd better give this product a try and my verdict is "Wow I rather like this whisky!" So promptly ordered 5 bottles to sustain the winter .......... wise move. My son was invited to a paty where everyone had to take an bottle of rare spirits for tasting. The 'Jericho' was well received.
