1 x The Lost Distillery - Gerston 'Classic' Whisky
Though we may never know what whisky from the Gerston distillery tastes like (it closed back in 1882, and then again in 1914), The Lost Distillery Company have researched their production methods and created a blended malt which they reckon might well taste like Gerston's whisky!
Nose: New leather, dried barley, charred oak and apple turnover.
Palate: Peanut brittle, olive oil, mint leaf and more pastry notes.
Finish: A subtly salty kick on the finish.
The Lost Distillery Company create blended malts which are supposed to represent how whiskies from long-closed distilleries might have tasted, using research to find out as much about them as possible. Awesome. This particular expression is based on information regarding the Lossit distillery, which resided on the Isle of Islay from 1817 to 1867.
Nose: Damp oak, earthy peat and a hearty helping of milk chocolate.
Palate: Cigar box, buttered crumpets, sea salt light hints of basil.
Finish: Remains packed with vanilla and peat.
1 x The Lost Distillery - Towiemore 'Classic' Whisky
The Towiemore Classic Selection expression from The Lost Distillery Company - a blended malt created after researching the long-closed distillery and made as an interpretation of what Towiemore's whisky could have tasted like all those years ago.
Nose: Juicy white peach and raspberries, with underlying hints of oily walnut.
Palate: Caramelised banana and apple, with a layer of salted butter.
Finish: Christmas spices and toasted almonds.
1 x The Lost Distillery - Auchnagie 'Classic' Whisky
A blended malt from The Lost Distillery Company, made to represent what the whisky from the long-closed Auchnagie distillery could have tasted like. Auchnagie produced whisky for just short of 100 years in Perthshire, from 1812 to 1911, and was dismantled the year after. After researching all they could about the workings of Auchnagie, The Lost Distillery Company created this expression to show us how the whisky might have tasted.
Nose: Digestive biscuit, banana and thick waves of honey.
Palate: Sponge cake (with yet more honey), rice pudding, dried apricot.
Finish: A subtle lick of baking spice appears on the finish.
