Archivist's Selection Lossit Blended Malt Scotch Whisky from The Lost Distillery Company shines golden yellow in the glass. On the nose, the archivist's Lossit surprises with aromas of peat, tobacco, soft nuances of smoke, hints of salty chocolate pudding, spicy vanilla and fresh toast with butter. On the palate, it is warm, balanced, with a nice interplay between smoky and gentle, spicy notes. In the finish, aromas of sweet, spiced pears, almond milk and marzipan appear, grilled tropical fruits that end in a very long, smoky and complex aftertaste.
Production of Archivist's Lossit Blended Malt Scotch Whisky by The Lost Distillery
Distillery Lossit was one of the most successful agricultural distilleries on the island of Islay and played a significant role in the rise of the island to an icon of Scottish whisky production. Founded in 1817 by Malcolm McNeill, farmer and distiller, Lossit Distillery soon stood out as one of the best producers on the island of Islay. With the rise of industrialization, distillation lost its importance until it was finally completely closed in 1867.
The Lost Distillery Company, with the help of a team of whisky historians, revisits the production method and taste profiles of the former distilleries. By marrying single malts of different distilleries in the specific Scottish regions and using the given resources, they manage to reinterpret whiskies that have long since disappeared.
