Auchentoshan - Batch 1 Bottling Note

A stunning Auchentoshan from That Boutique-y Whisky Company, Batch 1 features a superb illustration of bar maestro Ryan Chetiyawardana thinking up a recipe for a delicious whisky cocktail. Auchentoshan works particularly well in mixed drinks on account of the fact it's triple-distilled. Lovely. This is Batch 1 - a release of 154 numbered bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lovely parma violets on the nose, followed by sherry with hints of pipe tobacco and spice. A touch of kirsch and acacia blossom.

Palate: Creamy, sweet palate entry - marmalade on top of soft malt and orange blossom honey. Hints of lavender and wood shavings. A little candied peel develops.

Finish: Long, spicy finish. Apple peel, a soupcon of almond and prune juice on the tail.

Overall: Fantastic - a wonderful interplay between the floral Auchentoshan and the richness from the sherry cask.

User Reviews of the Auchentoshan - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)


The nose is floral and sweet, but also shows hints of wet cardboard, which is a bit off putting. Luckily that quickly fades to reveal fruits like peach, prunes and mirabelles. Hints of coconut and ginger. Rather syrupy. Raisins, hints of candied fruit. Not so bad.

Rather alcoholic on the palate, while the ABV is rather low. Very spicy now. Cloves, ginger (a lot of ginger, in fact) making it pretty sharp. Honeysweet, but that comes as no surprise.

The finish is long, slightly drying and spicy. For the first time, the oak rears its head and takes care of a mildly bitter end.

I feel the sherry influence is such that the delicate distillery character gets lost somewhat. Having said that, this is a nice Toshan, the finish being the best part.
