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.

Great review. I love when people review older whiskies because there aren't that many reviews on them in general and it really helps when researching for the next big purchase.

Thanks for sharing, Kutter! As A Toshan Man, I just have to ask: which bottling was it? Bottled in the 70s, 80s, 90s?
