The Lost Distillery Company Auchnagie Classic Selection Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
There are two tiers in the Lost Distillery Company series. The 'Classic' label expressions are lower proof versions (43% as opposed to 46%). The blends employ a variety of malts in order to recreate the imagined flavour profiles of some of Scotland's long closed distilleries.
Auchnagie (1812-1911) existed for almost 100 years near the hamlet of Tulliemet, approximately six miles south east of Pitlochry in Perthshire. Starting work as a remote farmhouse distillery, it ended its days, arguably, as the jewel in the crown of a global whisky empire. It had at least seven different owners and was silent for large parts of its life. This was not unusual for small-scale 19th century distilleries, as their precarious existence was often at the mercy of lack of water, lack of money, changes to duty laws and local demand for the product. In this example, expect a floral, honeyed nose followed by flavours of dried fruits and pepper. Reportedly non chill filtered, though not stated on the label.
