Auchentoshan 21 Year Old

Single cask 1997 vintage from the Glasgow distillery. Bottled March 2019 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old Malt Cask series. Nose: Sweet leafy plums, raspberries and chocolate. Palate: Smooth red plums, butterscotch. Finish: Long, lingering, fruity sweet.

Auchentoshan Distillery was built by John Bulloch around 1800 and originally licensed in 1823 as Duntocher Distillery but renamed Auchentoshan Distillery during the 1830s. Auchentoshan is situated just north of Dalmuir, close by the northern bank of the River Clyde. Then it was in the countryside and now hugging the north western fringe of Glasgow yet not far from Loch Lomond. Auchentoshan is now one of the few distilleries in Scotland to produce malt whiskey using a full triple distillation process. Expressions released by Wemyss, Hunter Laing and Cadenheads prove very popular.

Flavours of red berries, toffee, custard and a fruity, spicy finish. Just 149 bottles.

Buy – Auchentoshan 21 Year Old – $97.73
