A whiff of delicate fragrance. The slight promise of a heavenly taste in the wind. Just enough to set Deer, Bear & Moose on a wild hunt for what proves to be yet another exceptional addition to our collection.
 
In their crosshairs: this remarkable 20 year old Lowland Whisky. And the big, bold secret hiding under Auchentoshan’s kilt? Triple distillation. It’s their claim to fame. It also helped keep their heads above water when other Lowland distilleries were dropping like flies. Because Auchentoshan is a survivor. And we respect that.
 
Triple-D is what makes Auchentoshan as smooth as any Irish Whiskey, yet, it remains a purebred Scotch—a magnificent find embodying the best of both worlds. Now, triple distilled spirits tend to be somewhat bland. But with 20 years in a barrel, this one’s got enough character to blow the pants off of any true Whisky fan. 
 
Bottled at natural cask strength, this dram is non-chill filtered and features no-added coloring. Which makes it just imperfect enough to be… perfect.
 
What’s that we hear? A growl of approval from our wild trio? Well, It’s either that or a mating call… as we haven’t seen them this drunk in love in ages.

Peter
Peter,
Surprisingly smooth at hits with a musty scotch flavor without the burn. Earthy long finish. I'm enjoying this sipper, keeping the rest for a special occasion.
 
Michael
Michael,
Start from the beginning, nice appearance in wrapping. Bottle was safely shipped. Pop the cork, wafe it under my noise, no peat, but still good smell with caramel and fuit. Pour two over the rock, let it breathe, and another wafe under the nose. Now, there is caramel, spice, and fruit. Take first sip, definite burn around outer edge of front of tongue. (Mind you, I think jalepenos are hot). Second sip, burn didn't increase, nor decrease but stayed the same. As did the spice and fruit taste. Warm in the stomache, but not nauseatingly warm, a gentle, pleasing warm. The only thing this was missing was the taste of peat. It was similar to a Gentleman Jack in flavor, and warmth, but much smoother.

Matt,
A little smokey up front, but followed with a smooth honey flavor. Overall, very smooth and tasty.
