Carn Mor Auchentoshan Tasting Notes

Posted: May 18, 2016 in Auchtentoshan, Scotch Whisky A-G

Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask Auchentoshan 1991 (24 year old) 50.9%

Sherry Hogshead/ Dist: 1991 Btl: 2016/ Tasted: Apr 2016

Initially the aromas are quite grain-like with plenty of rummy, dried fruit, followed by hints of greengage, gooseberry, rhubarb and mulched rose petals. Beautifully balanced and mature with a very subtle sherry sweetness.

The palate is again quite grainy with a touch more sherry character. Quite spicy with sweet grapy notes and a thread of citrus. Soft rum-like dried fruit and spice come through on the middle along with a little wood tannin, but the citrus and alcohol combines to keep it vibrant. Long and juicy with baked fruit and vanilla and the dried fruit lingering. A lovely mature ‘toshan.
