Auchentoshan 29yr 1984 (Berry Bros and Rudd)
Thanks to Johnnie Stumbler (@johnniestumbler) from the Nosing Arse blog for this sample of Auchentoshan 29yr 1984 from Berry Bros and Rudd, i'm a huge fan of Auchentoshan and i'm hoping this is another belter.
This is a damn tasty dram, lots of the typical Auchentoshan notes of vanilla and citrus fruits with floral notes coming in too, this is typically Auchentoshan.
A few hints of parma violets creep into the floral notes which will annoy the blazes out of some people but that works for me as I always loved the little purple sweets, and the smell is one that really works for me.
Thanks again to Johnnie (@johnniestumbler) for the sample.
theres some really interesting notes of custard powder, freshly scraped vanilla, fresh tropical fruit slices, there are hints of sour fruit peels in here plum and nectarine skins, along with notes of citrus pith and peel and gentle pressed flowers.
Quite sweet and powdery, pressed flowers and hints of chalk, lovely sweet juicy fruits, like a blended tropical fruit juice and canned fruit salad smoothie, nectarine and plum skins and lots of vanilla, custard slices with custard and puff pastry.
sweet, custardy, floral, yummy.
