GSN Review: Auchentoshan American Oak

central-hero-images-core-range-aoAuchentoshan continues their unique line of triple-distilled whiskies with their latest which is aged in ex-Bourbon barrels.  You can also read my previous reviews of Auchentoshan Classic, 12-year-old, and Three Wood, as well as Auchentoshan Virgin Oak.

Auchentoshan American Oak (80 proof)
Visual: Medium gold.
Nose: Rich, deep, dark and malt-laden.  Hearty and with a fresh popped sweet corn nose.
Taste: Creamy, enveloping, and smooth.  Luscious notes of caramel, vanilla and out-of-the-oven baked biscuits draws you in.  This is the equivalent to the shortcake that goes with summertime strawberries.
Finish: Medium long with a lot of sweetness and vibrancy.  There is an electric excitement in this whisky which transcends mere words.
Overall: This is a spirit to convert non-Scotch lovers to the wonderful world of Scotch.  If you are already a Scotchophile, this is one to keep within hand’s reach when arriving home after a bitterly cold winter’s day.
GSN Rating: A+
