700ml // 58.0% ABV

The only bottle in New Zealand!

This is an astonishingly good Auchentoshan, distilled on the 11th December 1984. It was aged for 27 years in a bourbon barrel and Master Of Malts bottled it on the 20th November 2012. The aroma of this venerable Lowland single malt whisky is particularly intense, and leads to a complex flavour profile with a stupendously long finish – just the way we like it! There are just 209 bottles available.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Parma violets, greengages and black currant jelly form an aroma dominated by heady top-notes. Beneath this there are light floral notes and a little ground white pepper.

Palate: This is a light bodied whisky with clean notes of parma violets, lavender and carnations forming up on the palate. The texture is mouth-coating with a slight syrupy quality.

Finish: The finish is elegant and floral with notes of rose water and rose flavoured meringues. On the tail there is a little dried banana which clings on for a long time after the last phenomenal sip.

Overall: All the complexity and depth befitting its age but with a distinctly unique character. A glass of this punchy single malt will go a long way, leave it to sit for an hour or so to appreciate its delicate side.
