1988 Auchentoshan Limited Edition PX Sherry Cask Finish 29 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$999. 00 Bottle
A whisky that's not easy to track down. At the time of writing, this is the oldest Auchentoshan to land on our shelves. Initially matured in Bourbon casks for twenty one years before being given an eight year finish in sweet sherry, this is really beyond a 'finishing' - more like a second maturation. Whisky bloggers have been extremely satisfied with the result, variously describing a "Beautifully layered nose that offers the best of two worlds: bourbon and sherry." And "Chocolate, dried fruits, orange and thick jam flavours... a little heat comes forward with hints of vanilla, toffee and Bakewell tart." Not confirmed as cask strength but after three decades in barrel at 49.7%, it's reasonable to assume it is. Triple distilled. Very limited stocks.
