“Nice nose in this interesting Auchentoshan whisky with a taste that remind me of sweet sherry cask matured whiskies.”
The open grain of French Oak helps develop a full oaky character in this cask strength, non chill-filtered release.
The result is pleasantly sharp, countering the sweet Auchentoshan style.
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. honey, fruits, cherry, citrus, custard, spices, vanilla.
Palate (87): smooth, powerful, oily. honey, nuts, wood, cocoa, spices, fruits, citrus, floral. Great at first then something strange happens.
Finish (85): average. wood, nuts, spices, sweet.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Auchentoshan 1999 Bourdeaux Cask with 87 points over 100.
