Stratheden Vintage Lost Distillery
Vintage Lost Distillery whiskies contain whiskies from 15 to 38 years in age, all pure malts. Stratheden Vintage is surprisingly sweet and peppery to taste and a warming, medium-length finish.
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.
