The Lost Distilleries Blend from The Blended Whisky Company is an outstanding expression made exclusively with Scotch whiskies from distilleries that have sadly closed over the years. The whiskies from these lost greats are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike, and offer a valuable glimpse into the history of whisky production. The Blended Whisky Company have carefully crafted their eighth batch of The Lost Distilleries Blend using malt whiskies from Caperdonich, Rosebank, Imperial, Mosstowie, Glen Mhor, Glenisla, Glenlochy, Port Ellen and Brora, along with grain whisky from Port Dundas.
Batch 8 is a release of 668 bottles.
Nose: A tremendous, balanced, subtly smoky nose with notes of custard, pastries, fragrant barley, fruit salad and tobacco leaf. Complex and inviting.
Palate: Barley notes weave in and out of touches of chocolate, candied ginger, dried apricot and peat smoke. Wonderfully rounded with flamed orange peel and a little kiwi late on.
Finish: Well-toasted teacake with sultanas, lingering marzipan and hints of espresso.
Overall: Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Made exclusively with whiskies from Scottish distilleries that have now sadly closed, including the legendary Port Ellen, malt from which clearly contributes meaningfully to this exceptional blend.

Really like the richness running through this dram. Wasn't expecting as much depth from something without an age statement. Dripping in sweetness too - like a really good ice wine.

I had decided to save this for my birthday after finding this beauty behind door number 1 on my whiskey advent calendar and finding out the price of the bottle. I wasn't disappointed, this was delicious right from the first smell to the last drop. I found it a complex whiskey with many layers that came through with each sip. The overwhelming flavour was fruitcake with lovely little hits of smoke (my palate isn't as refined as most on here) a lovely balanced whiskey. The experience was over far too quickly and has left me wanting more, unfortunately at that price per bottle i won't be experiencing it any time soon. Exceptional stuff

A five star rating should be a benchmark whiskey, one to compare most others against. This one makes the grade, it has everything in spades: fruit, depth, character, a finish miles long.Most of all it haunts you a bit, days later you find yourself asking, when can I enjoy that again?An expert blend and a bittersweet tribute to the fallen and lost distilleries, it rarely gets better than this.

I am late to the game with the Advent Calendar so catching up a bit. I found a lovely sweet pastry nose with a fruity hint behind it, a bold smoky palate that melds into a complex barley fruity blend, with a finish that is like the lingering sweetness of a caramel candy with a roundness of mouth feel and the memory of the peat.
Stronger stuff at 53,1 % , alc kicks in with the first sip then gets smoother but doesn't loose its power. That's one for the winter days. Moderate smokey peaty notes. Creamy and warming on the palate. It has a sweet note though more subtle and also displays some salty and spicey notes in its long finish.

I am very new to whisky and in that phase where I am trying tI like it hence the whisky advent calendar. This is the first one I tried out of the calendar and it really is simply stunning . My palate is not the best but even I got pastries from it. Hides the alc content incredibly well. Didn't know anything about the whisky and looked it up hoping it would be affordable - my heart sank! I am just hoping that as I taste more varieties I find something approaching this for under 100 pounds - am in asking for too much? Perhaps but we will see

This is a beautiful whisky. I wasn't getting the smoke mentioned in the nosing and tasting notes: to me the overall nose was floral, almost perfumed, though not in the way that overpowers me with many Bourbons. The sweet, fruit and floral notes on the palate are exceptiona. I also think I tasted the tingle of sight sweet spices. The finish is long and complex, with a predominant, Speyside buttery taste. I'd say this takes the best characteristics of Speyside and Highland whiskies, and it does it well.This is a second blend that has surprised me recently by being exceptional and better than many single malls.Highly recommended. Shame it's so expensive.

It was the first dram in my whisky advent calendar and boy! it is good. I knew the name the lost distilleries but not more than that. When I open the case in the morning I thought "alright let's start easy with a blend". When I finally tasted it in the evening yesterday I had to check what MoM was saying in more details because I could not believe it was a cheap thing. It is not, and for sure you are paying the myth of the closed distilleries but it is worth a try if you can. It personally reminds me of a Ben Nevis 15 cask strength (which is worth almost three times less). I'm not good at describing in details but it is really good. I should have tried with a drop of water as the alcohol level is quite high. All in all, a very good tasting experience!
Very nice start to the advent calendar. Sweet up front. Salty with just a touch of water. Definitely get the custard and pastry. Nice light smoke and fades with a strong dried fruit. An even blend with some complexity.
Absolutely Fabulous! Wow! Notes of toffee, vanilla, a little orange peel followed with a note of espresso!Had it in s small dram with a half straw of spring water.. worth the wait!
Smooth beyond belief!
Wow this is a fantastic beginning to the 24 days of Advent. Just amazing.
I got a dram of this on day 1 of my Masters Of Malt Advent Calendar. It's amazing. It does everything beautifully, from nose to finish. Really delightful.
