Nose: Fruity with a mix of green apples, gooseberries, ripe plums and figs, vanilla, a hint of cola, honey, butterscotch and marzipan. Complex but very approachable.
Mouth: Musty with dust, old wood, honey, vanilla, a mixed fruit note leaning towards tropical fruits, espresso, a hint of walnuts and rye. It’s dry but not astringent.
Finish: Gooseberries, tropical fruits and raspberries surrounded by old dusty wood. There’s cola, coffee, walnuts, almonds, rye and a perfumey note that sits on top. It’s a long dry oak finish that eventually brings astringency.
Every year Auchentoshan releases a limited number of bottles of this expression. It’s triple distilled and aged in american ex-bourbon oak barrels and second fill ex-sherry casks. It’s part of the core range.
