What they say:

Placed in brand new oak casks right from the start, Auchentoshan threw the dice and won with their new Virgin Oak release. Instead of maturing in a cask that previous held sherry or bourbon, like most whiskies are, they did something different and have luckily created something stunning.

To the eye: Deep sienna orange

To the nose: Cinnamon and nutmeg, toasted vanilla and candied orange.

To the tongue: Spiced apple, smooth chocolate caramel, maple candy and a velvety mouthfeel.

To the end: Warm with spiced orange and brown sugar.
