Auchentoshan 1988 PX Sherry Cask Finish

Available in Sassine branch

70cl

Description

This distillery bottling was distilled in 1988 and bottled in Glasgow in 2018.
Famed for its exclusive use of triple distillation, Auchentoshan is based on the outskirts of Glasgow and was owned for the duration of the 1960s by Tennents brewery. They sold it to Eadie Cairns at the end of the decade, who upgraded the site and began officially bottling it as a single malt. The distillery passed through the hands of Morrison Bowmore before becoming part of the Beam Suntory table today. Unusually, none of the Auchentoshan output is reserved for blends, meaning there has been a wealth of distillery bottled single casks and independent releases throughout the years.
Matured for over 29 years, this well matured Auchentoshan has been finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks.
