The Whiskey: Single Malt
The Distillery: Auchentoshan Distillery
The Auchentoshan 21-year almost didn’t make the list. Why? Because it really doesn’t belong in the “under $150 category. With that said, it’s that good of a top-quality Scotch that I had to mention it. And hey, you may get lucky with a discount?! Anyways…It’s all that you could ask for in a Scotch; a perfect amount of peaty smoke aroma, a perfect combo of honey, vanilla, fruit, and oak, and a perfect blend of bitter and sweet.
Tasting Notes: To the eye, you’ll enjoy a deep color that can only be derived from a 21-year maturation process. To the nose, indulge in its berry, vanilla, and oak notes. And for the tongue, experience light and soft offering of chocolate, followed by a traditional smooth whiskey taste.
