Strathmill is one of the many faceless Diageo distilleries that provides single malt for the Johnnie Walker whiskies and other blends, rarely bottled or seen as a pure single malt, and often confused with Strathisla when it is available. Just outside of Keith in the Speyside region, it’s one of the few distilleries left that continues to use purifiers on its spirit stills, pushing the heavier alcohols back down during distillation, allowing the lighter alcohols into the condenser to create a delicate and lithe Highland malt. As part of our recent container, we grabbed every bottle available of this absolutely gorgeous 33 year old Strathmill from Hunter Laing’s Old & Rare series. Bottled at 54.2% cask strength from a concentrated barrel that yielded just 150 total bottles, the nose on this whisky alone is worth the price of admission. Candied stone fruit, creme brulée, oily wood, the purest aroma of freshly malted barley are still alive and well in the glass, despite the age of the whisky. On the palate, the oak strikes first, but soon gives way to more vanilla, lanolin (waxiness), sweet cereal grains, and a richness that reminds of my favorite Glenmorangie whiskies. Tough to go wrong with this one, especially with the beautiful box and packaging. If you need a gift for the whisky lover in your life, it’s hard to imagine anyone not enjoying this immensely. -David Driscoll, Mission Sales Manager
