At the end of the 1980s my beloved Auchentoshan bottled this 10 Year Old for Scottish Power. It was given out as a gift to their employees, with a matching decanter. The contents, however, is their regular 10 Year Old from that era. I poured it during my 49th birthday tasting last January.

Candy-sweet nose on butterscotch and white fruit, breakfast cereals and lemongrass. Fresh as spring, but far from complex. A typical aperitif.

The arrival is quite weak, to be honest. Watery almost. Chances are this is no longer 40% of course. White fruit, but also some litchi and a hint of white pepper. There is a mildly sour note in there that I cannot quite pinpoint.

The finish is short, softly peppery and easily forgotten.

This is a lightweight from the period that Auchentoshan made only lightweight malts. Those days are long gone, luckily.
