Using three different wood types requires considerable skill to get right, but in the right hands, triple-distilled Lowland malt is the perfect vehicle to show off the quality of the casks.
On the nose there is rum, wine cellar damp (perhaps a couple of bottles of good aged red have been spilled), a definite note of varnished mahogany; brown sugar, blackcurrant, nail polish remover. You can really smell the PX influence in this, so rich and dark and sweet is the aroma. The palate lives up to those expectations: dark chocolate liqueur, sugared black coffee, a softness typical of Auchentoshan’s triple distilled malt, more varnish; the wood is quite apparent, with a struck-match smoulder and a touch of bitterness reminiscent of tobacco leaf. Dry, with a bittersweet Turkish coffee richness…and more demerara sugar becoming apparent the longer it sits on your tongue. Then very blackcurrant on the finish, with a Christmas-pudding-and-brandy element. Quite sugary after a moment - like Ribena or blackcurrant yoghurt. A good companion to a maduro-wrapper cigar, with that dark chocolate sweetness…but nothing too strong. A Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto would do nicely. A perfect introduction to the heavily-sherried style of whisky, particularly the more intense PX elements - this is much like a softer, more sugary Glendronach. Recommended.
