LOST DISTILLERY TOWIEMORE CLASSIC

43% ABV. (700 ML.)

Place of Origin: Scotland

Towiemore Classic is a blend of various malts with notes of peach, vanilla, and almonds, with creamy aromas. The Towiemore distillery was founded in 1898 in the county of Dufftown in Speyside. It closed its doors permanently in 1931 due to problems with its water supply.

Nose: First, get soft sherry notes, and something fresh and vegetal. There's also a hint of mustard seed. Time to dig in. After a while, pick up vegetable broth as well, and the mustard associations grow stronger. And had to raid the fridge for all our mustard, tried them all, and can conclude that this nose reminds me (slightly) of French's Honey Mustard. Later still the nose is getting a bit warmer, with more fruit of the dark and ripe kind, and it is a bit sweeter with less emphasis on the mustard notes. Fast forward another 30 minutes will get almonds, vanilla, and a deeper sweetness still. Quite a complex nose.

Taste: The immediate delivery is very powerful, it feels as if the ABV is higher than 43 %. Not that there is any alcohol burn or anything like that, it just feels very full. Oily, and fruity. Lots of spices upfront; pepper, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg.

Finish: Dark chocolate, fatty nuts, and oranges - slightly bitter oranges - or is that a bit of orange zest? Imagine a very decadent and rich chocolate dessert with nuts, fruit and fruit juices. The finish is warm and medium to short in length.

Balance: As always with The Lost Distillery Company's whiskeys, this feels like a single malt. It is well-balanced and stands well on its own two legs. You are never drawn into guessing what single malts make up the mix here - there's no need to do that.
