Auchentoshan Bordeaux cask

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…

    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.
