Auchentoshan Valinch (2011)
Well today is the Auchentoshan Festival which I will be attending so I thought it would be appropriate to start the morning with a review of the 2011 bottling of Auchentoshan Valinch.
This stunning cask strength bottling of the NAS Auchentoshan Classic really shows why more distilleries should release cask strength whiskies, the flavours and smells from this whisky are just stunning.
The festival bottling this year is the 2012 Auchentoshan Valinch which i intend to pick up a bottle of and will review soon.
You can get most Auchentoshans at Master of Malt or directly from www.singlemaltwhiskyshop.com/
