Product Description

A limited release single malt from Auchentoshan that's a product of their 'New Malt Order' cocktail competition and the first edition of what will be an annual release of limited editions.

Blends created by 12 bartenders from five countries were brought together to create The Bartender's Blend, using whiskies spanning five decades (the youngest of which were 6 years old). That includes whiskies matured in ex-Laphroaig casks, rum casks, red wine barriques, German oak casks and American oak casks.

Bottled at higher strength (47%ABV) than the core range of Auchentoshan and the first of hopefully many in a more experimental approach from this Lowland distillery.

Nose: Dried cherry, aromatic tobacco, fruit and nut chocolate, nougart, toffee, rum soaked brioche, earthy ginger, raspberry jam, rose water/floral notes.

Palate: A deep dark honeycomb delivery, ginger, cherry tobacco, rum bhaba, aromatic spices, some earthy/leathery notes, spicy vanillin wood tannin, peppery rye bread, some late smoke and roasted sweet red peppers.

Finish: Dark treacle, ginger, earthy smoke, toasted spices, aniseed, coffee grinds, chocolate honeycomb and late pink peppercorn notes.

A Lowland malt disguised as something more like an Island malt, a very interesting mix of cask finishes that does work well together, something very different from The Auchentoshan distillery.
