Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 year old
|Single Malt Scotch
|United Kingdom, Scotland, Lowland
Triple distilled and matured in American Bourbon oak for over eighteen years. The result: 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. To the eye: Golden honey. To the nose: Crème brulée, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan. To the tongue: Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. To the end: Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness. To The Eye: Deep golden summer barley. To The Nose: Fresh tobacco leaf - then sweet with a hint of caramelised sugars, green tea and toasted almonds. To The Tongue: A floral freshness with sweet barley sugar at first - this gently ebbs to reveal a tangerine zestiness. The palate is left alive and refreshed. To The End: A long, lingering and well balanced dram that invigorates the mouth.
The dense aroma, profound with honey and wafting with smoke, hints at what's to come. On the palate, sweet vanilla and baked apple give way to lots of mouthwatering spice on the finish-clove, cinnamon and nutmeg.
