15-Year-Old AuchentoshanRegular price£119.99 Sale price
They reckon Auchentoshan malts take on more flavour than most from wood. This belter says they’re right. Pungently spiced, with a distinct hit of incense. Vanilla, nutmeg and other Christmas aromas abound. A touch of roasted hazelnut. Its golden hue suits its status as an IWSC gold medal winner with 95 points.
|Finishing Cask||Medium Charred Virgin Oak Barrel|
|Appearance||Rich Golden Hue|
Festive fragrances of mixed spices and sandalwood. Vanilla sweetness, overtaken by nutty moments. Its twofold time in wooden vessels permeates the taste – an oaky backbone, a wisp of charring.
That spicy, woody nature will not be hurried. Tapers off beautifully at the back of the palate.
SOME NICE SNAPS
Stretches from coast to coast and covers the rolling terrain of the Scottish Borders, as well as the nation’s two largest cities. This broad region traditionally produces more delicate, ethereal styles of whisky. Less heavy generally, but no less flavourful. Gentler characters. Light, grassy, floral. Citrusy. Some cereal notes.
