Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

16. Jan 2018
Distillery only bottlings can be a bit of a hit-and-miss affair. However, this 2005 Auchentoshan (aged for 12 years in PX cask 135, bottled at 59.8% ABV) is a real belter of a Single Malt! Maple syrup, raspberries and candy floss bewitch the nose, and there are notes of raisins, creamy toffee and freshly cut flowers. Strong, intense and sweet in the arrival, the palate is greeted by fresh herbs, peppermint and dark chocolate before wood spices and hints of berry sweetness march off into the distance. All in all, a fantastic whisky with a great presentation!
