One of the latest additions to the distillery core range, introduced in 2014. Auchentoshan American Oak is the first ever Auchentoshan to be matured exclusively in first fill ex-bourbon casks.
The name relates to white American oak trees (Quercus Alba species) grown mainly in Arkansas and Missouri and used by every bourbon producer (as required by the US law). If you want to discover the influence of bourbon barrel on Scottish single malt this young and vibrant whisky would be your best bet.
Nose: soft and creamy, vanilla, caramel, heather honey, raisins, coconut and lemon zest.
Palate: very smooth, citrus, peaches, coconut, vanilla, crème brûlée, hint of hay.
Finish: short yet pleasant, vanilla, grapefruit and oak spice.
