ABOUT THE WHISKY
Nestled in the heart of Speyside, the distillery stands solitary on a lone rock overlooking the rivers Fiddich & Spey. It rebels against the typical understanding of the Speyside style of Scotch by being powerful and exuberant with a hint of pineapple. Built in 1891, the distillery's produce on one occasion was described as a 'style seldom met’. The 13-Year-Old is a Speyside Single Malt aged in 3 Refill Bourbon casks and stands at 46% ABV. It was distilled in 2008 and bottled recently in 2022.
An earthy and full-bodied delight, the orchard fruit comes along as pear and golden apples with a topping of cream and toffee and a touch of white chocolate at the finish. Truly superb complexity for a Speyside.
Only 917 bottles were produced. The label of the James Eadie bottling was inspired by ‘The New Star Inn’ Tamworth, bought by James Eadie in July 1866.
