The old Select from the early 90s of last century come in two different packaging. One with the word Select on it and one without. The bottle without was destined for the Italian market, but the whisky inside is the exact same Auchentoshan Select.

The nose is pretty fresh, despite the fact that it has been sitting in the bottle for almost twenty years. No OBE on this young Auchentoshan nose. Loads of sweet malt, hints of green apples and lime. Very light, very fresh. Typical for summer.

It is a bit oily on the palate, but silky soft. Totally devoid of any bite. Sweet malt again, toffee, lime and a hint of banana. Aniseed?

The finish is very short indeed.

A light weight, no two ways about it, but it does not pretend tob e more. This is the ideal dram to enjoy on a sunny terrace, even with a cube of ice in it. I know, I know.
