Antiquary blend was created in 1888 by John & William Hardie, Edinburgh based wine and spirit merchants. They named their whisky after a novel by Sir Walter Scott, redolent with family secrets, stories of hidden treasure and hopeless love. The Hardies sold the brand to J&G Stewart in 1917, which was acquired by DCL the same year. In the 1980s The Antiquary gained great popularity in Western Europe, South America and Japan and in 1996 was purchased by Takara Shuzo, the Japanese owner of Tomatin Distillery. Ten years later the Antiquary range was revamped and re-launched globally. The backbone of the blend is naturally Tomatin supplemented with whiskies from Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands and to a lesser extend Islay. (Official tasting note.)
Nose: clean and soft with vanilla, orange, lemon and very light smoke.
Palate: fresh but balancing mellow grain with ripe and fruity malt; some heathery notes coming through.
Finish: medium, soft with a light smokiness.
