Lowland Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By North Star Spirits 70cl / 55%
Auchentoshan is a distillery that you never used to see indie bottlings from, but there's been a handful appearing here and there this year, which is always good news.
This is a very interesting one - an Oloroso hogshead of Auchentoshan 2007 13-year-old bottled by indie stars North Star Spirits in 2021, with 330 bottles turned out from the cask at 55%. We've high hopes for this one.
