JERICHO Archivist 46%
Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 19410
Located in Aberdeenshire, the Jericho distillery was founded in 1822. It closed in 1913. In Scotland in the 20th century, over 100 distilleries met with the same fate. Bringing these distilleries back to life by delving into the past to better move towards the future is the goal that drives the founders of the Lost Distillery Com - pany. Remarkable in every way, Jericho is an inspiration to set off on a journey of discovery of Stratheden, Auchnagie, Gerston, Lossit and Towiemore.
Profile: well-balanced and smooth. A basket overflowing with fresh fruit (pear, apple, plum), and an equally honeyed aspect.

- Nose : simultaneously firm and unctuous. The initial nose is characterised by notes of citrus fruit zest, vanilla, precious wood and polish. It gradually becomes spiced (pepper, cinnamon, cloves). Its earthy character gradually settles in alongside refined notes of dried peat and cigar smoke. It boasts wonderful depth and continuously rises in intensity
- Palate : balanced, smooth. A basket overflowing with fresh fruit (pear, apple, plum), the attack on the palate also has a honeyed side (acacia). The midpalate is incredibly voluptuous (vanilla flan, prune cake). Over time, it becomes herbaceous (verbena, sage) and malty. Ginger root and a clutch of green asparagus stalks finally emphasise its tannic side.
- Overall : long, sweet. Sugar-packed tangerines rub shoulders with Bourbon vanilla pods. Then, in a burst of freshness, it develops vegetal notes (grass, ivy). With unbelievable softness and mellowness, the retro-nasal olfaction shifts towards a more exotic (pineapple, coconut) register. The empty glass exudes liquoriceand chocolate-scented peat.
