Auchentoshan // Lowlands, Scotland
This is a triple distilled, Lowland single malt and is aged exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels. Auchentoshan Classic is the entry level whisky for the brand; or at least it was until the middle of 2014 when it was replaced with Auchentoshan American Oak.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The bourbon influence is clear with vanilla standing out. Cooked apples and lemon zest are on the palate along with more vanilla. What stands out the most is the soft, smooth texture to the dram. The finish is short and sweet. "
