The name ‘Antiquary’ was derived from the famous novel by Sir Walter Scott. This brand has a long heritage and is positively steeped in history; it is one of the very oldest blended Scotch whiskies.
Bottled at 40% ABV. 70cl.
Nose - peaty, earthy and solid, while in direct contrast displaying delicate fresh lemony lime characters. Nicely rounded and malty.
Taste - a mellow yet feisty palate; predominately malty, citrus flavours come through well with a gentle peaty touch.
Finish - short yet full with a pleasant lingering peatiness.
