1973 Berrys' Own Selection North of Scotland

Description

Sometimes known as Strathmore, North of Scotland distillery was converted from the old Knox Forth brewery in 1957. Initially there were plans to make Malt Whisky but this was shelved and the distillery produced Grain spirit until it closed in 1980. The distillery was demolished during the early 1990's.

There is much bourbon cask influence on the nose with some deep coffee notes, honey, peach and apricot. The palate bursts with sweet fruit and builds with layered intensity. The finish is long and soft with a little balancing spice.

Our latest and oldest Single Grain whisky shows the classic hallmarks of that unusual style. Lighter in body than Malt whisky, but with no lack of flavour or character, this is full of nutty wood-sweetness. Labouriously polished wood on the nose lifted by hints of kirsch and citrus peel. Reminiscent of sugar cane on the palate except with nicely balanced tannin from the decades in oak. Turning 40…? Think you know old whisky….? Expand your palate/horizon with this old beauty.

About this SPIRIT

North of Scotland distillery

North of Scotland distillery

The North of Scotland distillery was opened in 1958 at Tullibody, Clackmannanshire. The distillery made from converted brewery buildings, with the intresting twist that it initially produced Malt Whisky and Grain Whisky from the same column stills.

This proved to be rather unsuccessful and so after only a few years production was switched to just Grain Whisky. The distillery was closed in 1980 and finally totally dismantled in 1993.
