Stratheden lives again… with a warmth and character the world hasn’t seen since 1926.  
 
Over the last 100 years, more than 1/2 of all of the distilleries in Scotland were closed and abandoned. This is where the Lost Distillery Company comes in. Their logo is a Celtic triskele — an ancient symbol of life and renewal. They actually have an archiving team that researches extinct Whiskies based upon 10 elements of production. They use this info to reproduce Whiskies now long gone… to great effect. So far they have “resurrected” 6 Whiskies and we get the impression that they are not done yet. 
 
Stratheden Distillery was originally born in 1829 in the town of Auchtermuchty in Fife in the southern Highlands. Three generations of the Bonthrone family served up their spirit until the great dark era of Prohibition put an end to their dreams in 1926. 
 
Lost Distillery Company has faithfully reproduced this signature spirit. And that includes using Orkney peat to toast the barley — very unusual for a Highlander. So although this is definitely not a smoky Islay in character, it does have a sea-salt quality that is more typical of Whiskies made by the seashore. The word “unique” is tossed around far too often, but this dram deserves it.

Michael
Michael,
Great. Really good flavor. But it's a blended scotch. The web page here said it was single. Still very good.
Mel
Mel,
Not my favorite but still enjoyable. Would buy the company again, but not this bottle.
Adam
Adam,
Very flavor filled Scotch this is. Similar to my favorite beer, Skull Splitter, is not surprising as they both come from the Orkney Islands. Ordering again.
Paul

David,
I bought bottle #77. We close on our new house August 10. Then my buddies have to help us move- I am saving the bottle for when the last box is set down.
