Auchentoshan Virgin Oak II

Auchentoshan Virgin Oak This Auchentoshan Virgin Oak II was tasted as part of the #AngelsandDevils twitter tasting with Morrison Bowmore Master Blender Rachel Barrie (@TheLadyBlender) on 30th October.

Filled with huge sweet butterscotch flavours with hints of spice and a lot of fizz this is right up my street, it was my favourite of the bunch tasted and the one i'm likely to buy very soon indeed.

Thanks again to Morrison Bowmore for the invite to the tasting and if you fancy trying this then why not grab a bottle from The Whisky Exchange

 

Sweet butterscotch angel delight with ginger spice sprinked on top it becomes a little cinnamon apple pie with caramalised brown sugar sprinked on it, theres a woody oaky note hanging around in the background that just feels like it's going to jump out at you and say Boo!! Then freshly scraped madagascan vanilla coats the inside of the nostrils and mellows the wood spice.

more butterscotch angel delight and caramel apple pie with grated ginger and cinammon covering it, little edges of citrus fruit jump in and out and twist with it too, more vanilla and american cream soda with time.

still some woodspice but coated with butterscotch and caramel.
