Fred and Cara have more of these beautiful casks.
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.
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.
The finish lingers
nicely and is spicy with the emphasis again on the sweet malt.
