One of our latest releases with notes of spices, pepper and cloves. A marriage of 100% aged Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, no added colour, not chill filtered. A modern interpretation of the legendary Towiemore Distillery. The Towiemore Distillery was built in 1897 in the parish of Botriphnie just outside of Dufftown where it distilled for just thirty years. In this time it garnered a fine reputation as an excellent pure malt whisky. Owned and supported by renowned whisky entrepreneur Peter Dawson. Dawson was appointed purveyor of Scotch Whisky to Alfonso XIII, the King of Spain, and any bottle produced by Dawson featured the Monarch's seal. Dawson's whisky was also selected for the pleasure of the Prince of Wales, later George V, on the maiden voyage of HMS Indomitable to Canada in 1907. In 1910, Captain Scott chose Towiemore as his spirit of choice for his Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole; he took six cases of Towiemore with him. Appearance: Oaked Chardonnay. Aroma: Honeyed lemon tea on the nose develops into the smell of freshly proving bread dough, cinnamon dusted melon slices and a whiff of eucalyptus oil. Taste: A full and rich creamy palate then brings tannin from the oak before subsiding to a warm blanket of wood spices, pepper and cloves. Finish: As finishes go this is very long with warm sweet spices that seem to linger on forever. Comment: This expression delivers a complex Speyside profile with exceptional.

Wine EnthusiastHad the Dufftown/Speyside Towiemore Distillery not closed in 1931, this is Lost Distillery's take on what the whiskey might taste like today, part of a series. This blended Scotch has a copper penny hue and an aroma that intertwines light peat smoke with baked pear and tea. The palate shows cocoa, peat smoke, cigar wrapper and tea, finishing with clove sparks in a long, warm, smoky and chocolaty finish. Best Buy.
