    Good stuff. I hope
    Fred and Cara have more of these beautiful casks.
    • Nose
      Hmm, the nose is
      somewhat atypical. Sure, this is Auchentoshan with lemongrass, grain cookies
      and some grapefruit, but it is also a little dirty, if you know what I mean.
      That makes it quite interesting. Freshly cut grass and wild heathery flowers
      make it floral. But the heart of this nose is sweet malt. You can actually
      smell the mash.
    • Taste
      It is nicely zesty
      and powerful on the palate. Loads of ginger and icing sugar on a basket of
      tropical fruit. Think oranges and lime, but also a bit of peach. Honeysweet
      with loads of caramel.
    • Finish
      The finish lingers
      nicely and is spicy with the emphasis again on the sweet malt.
