Archive STRATHMORE 1972


Single Grain, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 19424

The North of Scotland distillery, also known as Strathmore, was founded in 1958 in the Stirling region, but closed in 1980 and was demolished in 1993. Distilled in 1972, this version was first bottled in 2004, but was never released onto the market. The levels in the bottles having become somewhat low, Rest & Be Thankful decided to rebottle the whisky in 2015. As a result, a privileged few will have the opportunity to procure one of the 621 bottles of this magnificent and extremely rare single grain.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep burnished gold.
  • Nose : rich and complex. An initial fruity sequence reveals citrus fruit (lemon and orange), fresh walnuts and quince jelly. The nose then becomes delicately woody with a hint of liquorice. With a gust of sea air, it becomes more saline and medicinal (with a striking mixture of balm and sage). A second fruity sequence gradually emerges, revealing coconut, candied pineapple and almonds.
  • Palate : deep, dense. The attack on the palate is most unusual. This powerful palate begins with medicinal notes (camphor, iodine tincture). Supported by delicately woody tannins, its fruity character now fully expresses itself; lively notes of apples and pears, cherry plums, cherry liqueur, mango and guava intermingle without losing their individual flavours.
  • Overall : long, tannic. Particularly generous and never dry, it offers notes of dates and coconut. Liquorice and lemon on the finish are dusted with a few spices. The retro-nasal olfaction is oily (walnuts, olives), while the empty glass is floral (iris) and herbaceous (tobacco).
