A very mysterious bottling, from a secret Speyside distillery. This whisky has been bottled by the Christie family, who previously owned the North of Scotland grain distillery, though this is a single malt. The name is slightly confusing, and it should be noted this whisky is of no relation to either Wolfburn distillery, nor Bladnoch. Rather, this whisky is named after Alexander Stewart, the 14th century Earl of Buchan and former Justiciar of Scotia, who gained the name for his extraordinary ruthless streak. This reached its zenith when he burnt down the centre of whisky production itself, Elgin. It was said he used to play chess with the devil. The whisky itself is rich, floral and buttery with a typical Speyside character. On the palate there are some beautiful plummy notes with highlights of crumbling toffee and raisins.
Lovely and smooth, sweet tasting and plummy
