Auchentoshan 18 Years Old Lowland Single Malt Whisky

43% abv

Auchentoshan is near and dear to my heart since I cut my “whisky” teeth on Irish Whiskey.   It is the only Scottish distillery that triple distils every single drop as Irish whiskeys generally are , while other Scotches are double distilled.  I had forgotten that I was given this dram, (which came with a 50 mL of 12 Years Old and Three Wood) until chatting with a friend about our TGIF libation.

Auchentoshan 18 Years Old Lowland Triple Distilled Single Malt Whisky

Colour:  Deep gold from 18 years ageing in ex bourbon barrels

Nose: green tea, citrus, marzipan, ginger

Palate: bourbon sweetness up front, smooth but lively, toasted almonds, dark chocolate cake on the back palate,

Finish: lovely lingering finish with sweetness and citrus and toasty vanilla.

A few drops of water really opens it up both aromas and flavours:  more floral and ginger comes through; vanilla creaminess on the palate.

A lovely dram and will be looking to add a full bottle to the collection!
