Strathmill is a somewhat elusive single malt. The distillery was built in 1892 as Glenisla and was renamed three years later by new owners, W&A Gilbey. A series of mergers over the years brought Gilbey’s into the IDV fold, and Strathmill became a key component in its Justerini & Brooks blends (J&B).
After maturing for over 21 years in an oak cask, this fine Speyside Malt was then transferred to a sherry cask where it rested for another 6 months, producing a unique sherry influence but still retaining the character of the original single malt. The whisky was then hand-selected from vintage warehouse stocks and then bottled. The Vintage Malt Whisky Company of Glasgow, one of the UK’s preeminent private-label bottlers. This whisky is non-chill filtered and was bottled at 46% abv.
