    Auchentoshan 21 yo 1999/2021 (51.3%, Lady Of The Glen, cask #501673, refill bourbon barrel, 30 bottles)
    Only 30 bottles, what happened here I wonder? Colour: bright gold. Nose: hey! What's this? Honeys, pollens, mirabelle, olive oil cake, beeswax, eucalyptus oil. Gregor seems to have bottled some 40 year old Glen Grant by mistake. Seriously, this is just a pile of soft honeys, green fruits and wonderfully concentrated syrupy natural sweetness. With water: abundant green fruits, freshness, wildflowers, waxed canvass and honeycomb. Lush! Mouth: I'm beginning to understand why there might only be 30 bottles now. This has the profile of an extremely concentrated, oxidative profile which also held its strength well. More of these very rich honeys, pollens and beeswax, but with a much bigger voice from the wood now too. Clean, toasty wood spices, bergamot, bitter orange peels, tarragon and more eucalyptus resins. Still excellent mind you. With water: works very well with water as it eases up on the woodier dominance. There's more balance now with some spiced jams, quince, putty, aniseed, crystallised citrus fruits, candied peels and more of these wonderful resinous beeswax qualities. Finish: good length, again maybe a tad too astringent but we're still comfortably in these nicely honeyed, fruity and waxy territories. Comments: only the slightly astringency on the neat palate and finish will prevent me going higher. But this is still the best Auchentoshan I've had in ages. Now, go find a bottle…
    SGP: 651 - 88 points.
