Auchentoshan 21 Year Old Limited Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from malted, optic barley that is gently kilned and completely unpeated. Once the barley has been malted, it is milled and mashed before being fermented in wooden washbacks made from Oregon Pine. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they retain a portion of the heat produced during fermentation, and ultimately produce a lighter and slightly sweeter whisky.
Following fermentation, the whisky is distilled through Auchentoshan's copper pot stills. While Scotch whisky is traditionally distilled twice, Auchentoshan Single Malt Scotch is distilled three times: first through a wash still, then through an intermediate still, and finally, through a spirit still. This extra distillation step — no other major Scotch distillery uses an intermediate still — produces a purer and more refined spirit that dramatically affects the character of the whisky produced.
Auchentoshan 21 Year Old Limited Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon casks and ex-Spanish sherry casks for a minimum of 21 years. The limited-edition Scotch has an aroma of ripe berries, creamy vanilla, oak, honey and mint. The aroma gives way to notes of sweet milk chocolate, honeyed oak, green apples and nutty dough, and leads to a long, elegant finish. The whisky earned a score of 91 points from Whisky Advocate, and was named F. Paul Pacult's "top choice" as the quintessential Lowland Single Malt.
