Matured in first-fill American oak ex-bourbon casks, one of the best value Auchentoshans the Lowland distillery has ever produced.
Famously triple distilled, Auchentoshan produces a light, grassy spirit that is very pure and succinct. This young American oak release is matured solely in first fill casks (that is, the first time they've been used after housing bourbon) and has bright honey and vanilla notes.
This bottling was first launched in 2014, to replace the Classic, and made it to Australia in the second quarter of 2016.
Tasting notes by the distillery:
Nose: Bourbon vanilla and coconut with layers of zesty citrus fruit.
Palate: Refreshingly smooth yet lively with vanilla cream, coconut and white peach.
Finish: Crisp with sugared grapefruit and a hint of spice.
