Auchentoshan Virgin Oak Bottling Note

Placed in brand new oak casks right from the start, Auchentoshan threw the dice and won with their new Virgin Oak release. Instead of maturing in a cask that previous held sherry or bourbon, like most whiskies are, they did something different and have luckily created something stunning.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Pockets of spicy nutmeg float upon a calming vanilla.

Palate: A fruitiness follows on the vanilla sea alongside the nutmeg. Orange buoys bob up and down, sharp and fresh.

Finish: A flock of seagulls made of brown sugar flutter by, completing the picturesque scene perfectly. Bliss.

User Reviews of the Auchentoshan Virgin Oak

Bring on the oak!!

I tried this at a whisky tasting event and for me it was the most memorable of the night. I love oak finish and this baby has plenty of it. Just holding the glass to your nose gives you a wonderful aroma and the drink itself was smooth and satisfying. Loved it!!

Superb Dram!

Received this in a sample in a set from Master of Malt. The nose is sweet, with the aforementioned nutmeg and vanilla bean, but I also found egg custard topped with chantilly cream. The citrus in the palate is a nice surprise and blends perfectly into a smooth and long, lightly oaked finish. I loved the sample, but referencing other reviews, hope that when I purchase a bottle or two they will taste the same as the sample I enjoyed so much.

Disappointed upon opening; pleased nearer to end of bottle

when I took this home I had moderate expectations as I'd never tried Auch before. after first taste I tried to return the bottle. It just wouldn't go down. no luck on the return...I've been pecking at it since. As of today with a half bottle left I feel as though time has improved this Lowlands whisky. I'll rate it on how it tastes now.
nose: sour cherries, vanilla, flowers
palate: orange peel marmalade, burnt sugar
finish:toffee pudding eaten on a hayfield at harvest, anise

not what i thought it would be

I tasted this whisky in a bar and loved it. So the next week bought myself two bottles. Have been so let down as the bottle I have opened tastes of nothing but oak. I have decanted it and given the bottle time but the taste is the same so annoying that two bottles can tastes so vastly different. We all know that bottles can vary a wee bit but this should never have been sold.

Virginity is a lark.

Spicy, broiled grapefruit with brown sugar and allspice on the nose. One taster commented on the nose: wouldn't mind this as a candle air freshener. Tastes of black pepper with a clean, lingering buttery heat.
