A beast of a Speyside whisky in the heavily-sherried cask-strength Speyside.
No two batches taste the same but typically it has a turgid texture reminiscent of toffee dainties and hard caramel; the toffee flavours on the palate have augmentations of great depth ranging from dark chocolate to mint. Usually it offers even more with a dose of water added.
A highly recommended release.
The contemporary Lowland single malt. This is a light and subtle whisky from a stylish, contemporary brand with younger adult appeal. Auchentoshan, an extremely versatile single malt, can be enjoyed in many ways. Auchentoshan is also used by many of the World's top chefs in both savoury and sweet dishes. Most importantly, Auchentoshan can be enjoyed on its own straight up or on the rocks. Tasting Note: Triple distilled and matured in American bourbon oak for over eighteen years. The result is a refreshing Lowland single malt whisky with the added infusion of ripe citrus and green tea, the warmth of toasted almonds and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
