Lady of the Glen Auchentoshan Tasting Notes

Posted: October 14, 2016 in Auchtentoshan, Scotch Whisky A-G

Lady of the Glen Auchentoshan 1995 (20 year old) 54.3%

Refill Sherry Barrel 654/ Dist: Dec 1995 Btl: May 2016/ Tasted: Sept 2016

Nose: Fragrant, summer barley with a touch of dried grass. It has a very noticeable alcohol prickle but the late arrival of white fruits, honey, dunnage and vanilla oak add balance. Water makes it feel older.

Palate: Soft and full with a lovely barley sheen and mouth-watering citrus notes. Hints of rose oil, herbs, vanilla and spice come through on the middle. Water emphasises the oils and brings out an unfortunate old cardboard note.

Finish: Neat it is a little short and mouth-watering. Diluted it’s more succulent with dusty cereal husks.

Conclusion: I think this has been bottled just in the nick of time.
