A release of just 500 bottles, distilled at Auchentoshan in 1975 and aged for a whopping 35 years in bourbon oak. A huge, toffee-rich whisky.
Nose: Huge notes of rum and raisin, hints of pepper, treacle, toffee apples, vanilla, butterscotch and cookie dough ice cream.
Palate: Citrus and vanilla-led, some more of that toffee apple from the nose, rum and raisin icecream, tons of vanilla. This is a sweet, dessert-like malt!
Finish: Medium length, butterscotch and spices.

It's full gold color, bordering on bronze, might make you think a sherry cask was involved. That is not the case. This Auchentoshan matured exclusively on bourbon casks for 35 long years. Date of distillation is 7th May 1975, bottling took place on 8th March 2011. The nose... oh... the Nose! To call this one 'bourbonny' would be unfair. It's much better than that. I get butterscotch ice cream with acacia honey, raisin rum and three sorts of vanilla, if such a thing exists. I've never had such a beautiful nose on a bourbon matured Auchentoshan before. It keeps developing in the glass. Toffee and some licquorice. A spoonful of mint. Grand, deep and simply delicious, this nose is. I'm not sure I'm going to drink it. Seems to be a shame... It starts very soft on the palate, with citrus in the lead. But soon the sweet honey takes control and caresses the tastebus in all the creaminess it can muster. Fudge, sweet malt, a touch of oak and a pinche of cinnamon round out the whole. Exquisite balance. This makes even the most experienced Toshan Man's jaw drop. Typically Auchentoshan, yet so much more. Words cannot do this whisky justice. If only the finish were a little longer, this would be the perfect whisky. The finish is rather soft and let's the sweet malt do all the talking. This is a peerless Auchentoshan, period!
