North of Scotland does not describe whisky from a general region but was the name of a grain whisky distillery that used to lie close to the Highland town of Alloa, to the north of Edinburgh. It was founded in 1958 by George Christie who built his distillery in converted brewery dating back to 1786.
For the first couple of years the North of Scotland Distillery produced both grain whisky and a single malt but switched to only producing grain whisky for blending. The distillery closed in 1980 and the equipment was dismantled and sold off in 1993.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 05/09/2011


Clear, dark golden amber.


Rolling tobacco, plastic box, old varnish with aromatic cinnamon dusted dried fruit and candied lemon peel. A whiff of eucalyptus - somewhat reminiscent of a dry madeira.


Hydrated to approx. 40% yields a sweet, toffee apple with rich vanilla and caramel balanced by dry, bitter woody tannins.


Wafts of smoke and spice emerge in the still toffee influenced mocha coffee, woody finish.
