Auchentoshan / Berry Bros and Rudd

Auchentoshan 29yr 1984 (Berry Bros and Rudd) Review

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.
