Auchentoshan American Oak Lowland Single Malt
In Stock - 2 available
In a nutshell:
A sweet, smooth and delicate Lowland single malt matured in ex-bourbon casks.
A triple distilled Lowland single malt matured in bourbon casks. Sweet vanilla, coconut and zesty citrus aromas lead onto a smooth and fresh and creamy palate that has hints of white peach with a crisp finish of sugared grapefruit and spice. It's a really versatile single malt, perfect neat, or over ice and works wonderfully well in a range of classic cocktails.
