Another one of the Toshans from the sample swap with the ‘Toshan Man, Mark. I was really looking to tasting this one, being a sherry cask, and indie selected by Belgian whisky club Fulldram. And I was in for a treat
Auchentoshan 1999 Malts of Scotland Xmas Fulldram , 56,4% ABV , Cask # 2412
Nose: Sweet burst of sugars. Big sherry influence with dates, raisins and a touch of the balsamic. Classic sherry really Textbook. Oloroso supreme.
Palate: As expected a real sweet winey rich palate. Mouth coating warming and delicious. Candied fruits , chocolate covered raisins , syrupy and delicious with a bit if bitter coffee beans to Balance it out.Truly yummy.
Finish: Sweet spicy ending on bitter chocolate / espresso.
Well made, ideal for a cold winter evening, or a winter evening (it does not get very cold over here, but under 10 is considered cold).
