launches 2nd batch of Silveroak
exclusively in travel retail.
have announced the release of a 2nd
batch of its travel retail limited
edition the Auchentoshan Silveroak 1990.
Following on from the success of the
first batch of Silveroak, this limited
second release of the 1990 vintage has
been matured for an additional year
making it 22 years old. Therefore the
second release of the Auchentoshan
Silveroak expression demonstrates the
increase in complexity associated with
Established in 1823, Auchentoshan is
quite unique amongst Scotch whisky
distilleries as it triple distils every
drop meaning the spirit produced reaches
81.5% ABV, significantly higher than
most distilleries in Scotland. This
triple distillation production method
creates a lighter liquid which enables
it to absorb every characteristic it is
exposed to in the cask. It is this
smooth distillate paired with the
carefully selected oak casks that gives
Auchentoshan an unmistakably light and
fruity flavour. The Auchentoshan
Silveroak is no exception to this rule.
Auchentoshan Master Blender Rachel
Barrie says "Having spent an additional
year maturing in fine North American
bourbon and Spanish Oloroso sherry
casks, the 2013 bottling of Auchentoshan
Silveroak reveals additional complexity
which lifts the taste with silky oak,
mint and almonds."
Boasting the same classically modern
livery as its peers in the Auchentoshan
Travel Retail range, the new Silveroak
1990 carton is masculine yet elegant. As
with the liquid inside, the oak casks
are the stars of the show on the pack.
The North American bourbon and Spanish
Oloroso sherry casks are pictured on
three sides of the carton, reflecting
how the flavours from the sweet bourbon
oak perfectly compliment that of the
rich Oloroso sherry.
There will be 3600 bottles of
Auchentoshan Silveroak 1990 available
globally in a range of international
airports priced at £90.00 with an ABV of
50.9% which is a decent price for a
limited release whisky of this age and
bottled at this strength.
