This is the old Auchentoshan bottling, which I received in fall for my Birthday. It is the first Toshan that I am tasting, so I cannot compare it with the younger expressions
Body: the legs are thin and very long to form. You almost can see the triple distillation
Nose: First it was grassy notes with hints of toffee, but after the malt breathed for a few minutes, it was all about apples (McIntosh brand or similar to be more precise). There is maple syrup too and the grassy notes are still there but the apple is very in the front.
Mouth: Very pleasant with all flavors that the nose got. You can feel the triple distillation as the alcohol is very volatile and the liquid is creamier
Final: It is a long final lingering on grassy notes
A very nice dram. Does it worth the 150$ it cost? Maybe not, but I will enjoy each and every dram of this bottle now that I have it in my cabinet as a gift.
