Lost Distilleries Batch 7 Bottling Note

The Lost Distilleries Blend is a truly extraordinary whisky made exclusively with malts and grains from renowned, but sadly closed, Scottish distilleries. The surviving stock from these once great distilleries has become legendary in many cases, and is highly sought after by enthusiasts and cognoscenti. They are pieces of liquid history, lovingly crafted into this wonderfully balanced, multi-award-winning blended whisky.

Batch 7 is a blend of Port Ellen, Caperdonich, Mosstowie, Glenisla, Glenlochy and Imperial Scotch malt whiskies as well as grain from Port Dundas.

This is a limited release of 526 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Initial fragrant smoke, even a touch of sweet barbecue from the peated malts, before banana and apricot Danish pastries emerge. Melon notes from the Port Ellen combine effortlessly with complex grassy, nutty and floral malted barley.

Palate: Sweet entry with marzipan, chestnut and luxurious honeyed plums. Orchard fruit and warming peat tang develop with more subtle, ethereal cereal notes beneath the surface. Rye bread can be tasted, whilst a touch of zesty marmalade adds pep to proceedings.

Finish: More wheat-like cereal on the finish with juicy raisin and apricot, crushed almonds and Yirgacheffe coffee. Complex and satisfying to the last.

Overall: Exceptional balance as well as sympathetic and knowledgeable use of quality rare malts are the hallmarks of this stunning whisky. Each component plays a key role.

Lost Distilleries Blend - Batch 7 Reviews

Extremely accomplished

There's a note of dirty engine oil in this blend that can really only have come from the Brora and Port Ellen in it. Kudos, on having found such exceptional components to build a blend that allows them to shine through without being drowned in vanilla-rich grain.

I attended the Aberdeen Whisky Festival on Saturday 23rd April and was fortunate to nose and taste a good number of excellent Whisky's. However the one that stood out above the rest was the Lost Distilleries Blend Batch 7
My own personal notes are as follows:
Colour: Rich 18ct golden with sunshine highlights, bright and clear with great legs.
Nose: Appetizingly fresh quite salty with a light smokiness and malty sweetness leading to a nice balaced spicyness of oriental fruits and dried apricot and pears.
Palate: Sweetish at first but not overpoweringly so with nice fruit driven apricot marmalade flavours, very clean and delicately flowery.
Finish: Long warm and velvety smooth with a hint of ginger and nuttiness quite complex (which is nice) with a good balance of fruityness.
Luxurious

This is crazy good

What a nose with fresh fruit, mint and tea notes, sweet taste with soft spices and just hint of oak in the aftertaste. This is very very good stuff

The best yet

I was lucky enogh to try the previous couple of batches of this whisky and can confidently say that this is the best one I've tried so far. Real heather-honey sweetness on the palate and really well integrated .
