A very interesting Auchentoshan - matured in a Bourbon hogshead and an x Chateau Lafite hogshead (First Growth Bordeaux red wine). Distilled in 1999 and bottled in 2018 with an outurn of 258 bottles. Triple distilled and non chill filtered. Thumbs up from Serge Valentin below.

Other reviews... From one bourbon cask and one Lafite cask. Wait, did they well write ‘Lafite’ this time? Without two Fs and without two Ts? I say hurray, fantastic, bingo, they got it right! Kudos Campbeltown, this is really game-changing; what’s more, remember they needed years to go from ‘Barollo’ to ‘Barolo’, so I would say they’re learning faster and faster. Colour: gold (so no Lafite red and last time I checked, Lafite didn’t do white). Nose: I couldn’t help seeing the back label, on which they’re mentioning cola. They are extremely right, they managed to produce a better Coca-Cola. Hint, never, ever read Cadenhead’s back labels when tasting one of their whiskies, because they’re dangerously accurate – while other bottlers seem to be hiring copywriters on acid who shall never even have one cl. In their tumblers. With water: a tad more on barley, on malt, on regular cake. Mouth (neat): no, no back label before us this time. So rather blood oranges, Jaffa cakes, Cointreau, and a touch of lemon tarte – with meringue, s’il-vous-plaît. With water: back to barley and cake again, so to speak, but I’m feeling a touch of wine, rather some ripe chardonnay… Which just cannot be in the case of Lafite. I mean, Lafite-Rothschild. Finish: medium, creamy rounded, more on vanilla. After all, there was a bourbon cask too. Comments: looks like the humble and cheap bourbon barrel tamed the posh and expensive Lafite cask. I these days of looming revolution (looming eternally, that is), I say that’ll teach them. 52.4% Alc./Vol.
