Auchentoshan 1999 Bordeaux cask,
Matured for 11 years in French oak casks from chateau Lagrange,
Bottled at 58% and NCF .
Nose.. It’s different.. Sweet, oaky, vanilla, a massive fruity kick, grape and a hint of apples,
shut your eyes and it takes you to an old French farm house, fresh baked bread on a rustic old oak table, a large glass of Whisky ( instead of wine ) the late evening sun just over the top of the hills, vines swaying in the evening breeze, just delightful..
Palate.. Wow, A fresh, smooth sweet fruit kick, full of grape, apples, vanilla, a soft oaky hint with a faint touch of spice,
Finish.. A fresh medium dry finish,
Just delightfully fresh and fruity, it just seems to work .. A lovely summertime dram…

Hey there, I think your site is terrific . When I look at your blog i always think pretty much the same for your notes. I just wanted to give you a quick hello and say I think this is a great blog!
I am a big fan of Auchentoshan so I enjoyed it immensely..
I can’t say I am a big fan for Auchentoshan but I did try this a wee while back and rather enjoyed the bouquet more than the flavours but overall it was very pleasant. Thank you for this review.
