Perennial fan-favourite, the Old Malt Cask range offers up this very interesting example of Lowland gem Auchentoshan. Distilled in 1997, it’s spent 14 years maturing in a refill hogshead, before 303 bottles were released at the Old Malt Cask’s trademark strength of 50% ABV.
Triple distilled then matured for over twelve years, this Lowland Single Malt Whisky has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Auchentoshan decided to create an interesting whisky that uses 12 top bartenders from around the world to help them create a whisky specifically for creating tasty cocktails. It uses an eclectic range of casks, including ex-Laphroaig casks to German oak and ex-rum barrels.
Nose: Clean and fresh - A sweet creamy character and a dusting of cocoa.
Palate: Carries sweet ripe fruit - crushed sugar and a gentle citrus quality.
Finish: Still sweet - now softly spiced and an attractive orange pith style
