Auchentoshan 16 Year Old Bourbon Cask

This 16 Year Old Auchentoshan is a vatting of first fill bourbon barrels. A total of 4.800 bottles were released at a cask strength of 53,7%. I did not compose this tasting note by myself, but also used the imput of the audience during my Toshan Night (an all Auchentoshan tasting I hosted in Belgium recently). This is our joint verdict.

The nose is very rich and fruity with loads of good stuff like citrus, vanilla, maraschino cherries, syrup waffles, coconut and even some chocolate (Bounty?) and nougat. Wonderful.

The ABV means business on the palate, nice and feisty. But it does not need water. It is very sweet and creamy. Reminds me somewhat of pastry. Ripe pineapples, pears (sirop de Liege), almonds, liquorice. A little spicy, mostly cinnamon. Mon cheri. Macarons with coconut. This is just great.

The finish is medium in length, sweet and spicy.

This is a very exciting and feisty Auchentoshan, with the best a bourbon barrel has to offer. It is the kind of Auchentoshan that makes people tell me ‘now I understand why you are the Toshan Man’, which I take as an absolute compliment. Around 75 EUR and worth every penny.

Sounds great!


I know the Three Wood is young and a bit rough but I think I probably like it more than this more expensive version of Auchentoshan. The 16 doesn't seem to have a lot of depth although I did like it. On the Nose there is a slight bourbon scent with cherries and vanilla predominantly but also a very floral scent. For a cash strength its Palate is very smooth with no alcohol hotness and a slight sweet malty flavor. With water the palate really dulled down. It has a very long finish.

I would ideally rate them side by side, which I didn't but I think I'd rate the three wood at 8.5 too but for different reasons. I love a sherry wood influence that is balanced, which I think it is and I would also say one gets more bang for the buck in the the three wood.

I just love this........ i agree with rating the threewood the same for different reasons..... although i would give 8.75.....
