Auchentoshan 50

Country: Scotland
Region: Lowlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 44%
Score: 92 points

This single malt spent 50 years in an Oloroso sherry cask, yet it is paler than most Oloroso-aged whiskies. The nose is very delicate, with a light sweetness that hints of green tea, peppermint, and lavender. The taste is reminiscent of the White Bowmore, with tropical fruits (mango, coconut, and banana), along with creme brulee and vanilla, and it winds up with a creamy finish of coconut, vanilla, figs, and a sweet hint of maple syrup.
