It has become a tradition that I organize a so-called Toshan Man Birthday Tasting for my birthday. Due to corona, this is unfortunately online for the second year in a row. Hopefully live again next year. As the opener of that tasting – the apero, so to speak – we taste this older bottling of Douglas or Drumlanrig in which an Auchentoshan from 1991 appeared that was allowed to rest on a bourbon barrel for 14 years. I'm honestly a bit surprised with the relatively low alcohol content.

The nose is very simple. Cereals with some citrus fruit, a little butter, something of camphor and white pepper. If I'm being completely honest... it is quite boring and does not even smell pleasant.

It's a bit better on the palate, but it never gets big. Now I mainly get apples and lime juice, some banana and white pepper. Lemongrass. Licorice. A hint of kiwi. This is much better than the nose announced.

The finish is rather short, sweet and soft peppery.

Mediocre, really. Disappointing. An aperitif to quickly forget.
