Named after the 1816 gothic novel by Sir Walter Scott, The Antiquary is a Victorian blend with Edinburgh roots that now falls under Japanese ownership. Early bottles featured a caricature of one of Scott’s main characters (likely the antiquary himself, Jonathan Oldbuck) on the label.
Today The Antiquary is sold as a no-age-statement, 12-year-old and 21-year-old, as well as a limited edition 35-year-old. A high proportion of Highland and Speyside malts (45%) provide typical citrus and vanilla notes, while a dash of Islay malt accounts for its light smokiness.
