"The obliteration is total. Only the name remains." So ends the story of Stronachie, a distillery which rose out of the wilderness in the 1890's. Set in a desolate glen on the Perth-Kinross border, it stood between bleak hills on an isolated road that toiled its way through the Ochill mountains. Stronachie Distillery produced a traditional Highland-style whisky until 1928 and during its four decades of production AD Rattray Ltd. represented the brand in Scotland. To replicate the whiskey, a bottled of original Stronachie 1904 was purchased at auction - one of only four bottles left in existence.
Nose: Soft honey, earthy heather and malty sweetness.
Palate: Smooth with luscious honey and biscuits, then lingering pepper and cereal notes.
