Auchentoshan American Oak. Image courtesy Morrison Bowmore Distillers.This is the only Auchentoshan expression exclusively matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, and it shows. The nose has notes of toasted oak, vanilla, coconut, banana, honey, and a hint of tangerine. The taste is fruity and almost effervescent with tangerine, mango, coconut, vanilla, and touches of clove and honey adding balance. The finish is fruity and sharp with citrus, clove, and a hint of cinnamon. Excellent! (May, 2014)
