Auchentoshan triple distill their new spirit resulting in it being remarkably pure and smooth...a very good basis for whisky wouldn't you say?
Initially matured for 8 years in North American followed by 17 years in first fill wine barriques from Bordeaux, this 25 year old Auchentoshan is has richness, sweetness and harmony.
Cinnamon-spiced plums, sweet black cherries and chocolate cream on the nose. Beneath the sweetness is the subtle earthiness of ginger root, dried tobacco, cocoa and roast chestnut. On the palate, this whisky is supple and smooth with spicy oak tannins and a subtle chalkiness. Sweet cherries, plum skins and icing sugar develop with gently warming spices and burnt orange peel. The finish offers ripe cherries and rich, grapey-wine tannins that linger long after the last drop of whisky.
