Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 366: Auchentoshan 30 Year Old 1987 for Singapore – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 366: Auchentoshan 30 Year Old 1987 for Singapore

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, shares his experience with a very special Auchentoshan. After the single cask release bottled for China in 2017 (which took close to military maneuvers to get a bottle to Belgium) another single cask was bottled in 2018, this time for Singapore. Getting that one to Belgium was even more crazy. After Mark found out about the release, he put a cry for help on Facebook. Keith Chong from Singapore got in touch saying he could help, while Davide Romano – yes, the fellow behind Valinch & Mallet with which Mark has been friends for a couple of years – told him he was about to travel there. Mark brought Keith and Davide together and the latter offered to be the smuggler courier to bring the bottle back to Europe. The corona debacle meant that it still took quite a few weeks to get the bottle to Belgium, but at last it’s home. It’s an Auchentoshan from 1987 that matured for three decades on a sherry butt.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 365: Auchentoshan 18 Year Old 2000 Malts of Scotland – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 365: Auchentoshan 18 Year Old 2000 Malts of Scotland

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, is also known as the Toshan Man. Hence, another Auchentoshan rambling. Malts of Scotland – the German independent bottler – found a beauty of a sherry hogshead in the warehouse, that was filled with Mark’s favorite Lowlander’s triple distilled spirit in 2000. The Auchentoshan matured for 18 years before the cask yielded 329 bottles at cask strength. Two bottles made it his way and he seems very happy with them.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 364: Auchentoshan 21 Year Old 1997 Signatory for The Whisky Barrel – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 364: Auchentoshan 21 Year Old 1997 Signatory for The Whisky Barrel

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, returns to his beloved Lowlander. This Auchentoshan was distilled on 22nd October 1997 and bottled by Signatory on 22nd October 2018, 21 years later to the day. It was selected by online whisky retailer The Whisky Barrel as an exclusive. Obviously I had to have it for the collection, but it looked so good that I ordered two bottles. One of those was presented during my birthday tasting earlier this year.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 363: Auchentoshan 24 Year Old 1992 Signatory for La Maison du Whisky – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 363: Auchentoshan 24 Year Old 1992 Signatory for La Maison du Whisky

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, has another Auchentoshan. Figures. La Maison du Whisky does not need an introduction. Very regularly they select casks that are bottled exclusively for their shops. This is one from Mark’s favorite Lowlander. It was distilled in 1992 and bottled as a single cask for them by Signatory in those beautiful but very-hard-to-pour-from decanters in the Cask Strength Collection. It was part of Mark’s line-up of his 50th birthday dinner in a Belgian whisky restaurant… and with good reason!
