Auchentoshan Introduces 1998 Vintage Scotch Matured in Sherry Casks

auchentoshan 1998 vintageAuchentoshan Scotch Whisky (Scotland drops the “e”) just announced the release of a 1998 Sherry Cask Scotch. This 1998 batch of single malt whisky was exclusively matured in Fino Sherry barrels and is now available in the United States. With only 750 bottles available, it won’t last long.

The Auchentoshan 1998 Sherry Cask is bottled at cask strength and is non chill filtered, both of which should yield lots of flavor and complexity. Pending review, here are some tasting notes provided by Auchentoshan.

Color — Deep copper

Body — Medium-bodied Lowland

Nose — Butterscotch, honey, preserved orange peel, toasted almonds

Palate — Sweet and creamy aromas at first which then give way to the signature citrus characteristic of Auchentoshan

Finish – A hint of green apple and blossom

Stats:
– 54.6% Alcohol by Volume
– $80
