Auchentoshan Blood Oak, 46%

Price: $100 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

A non-chill filtered bottling matured in a mixture of bourbon and red wine casks. The nose offers a big early orange hit, vanilla, and red wine notes. Smooth on the palate; more orange, black pepper, and spicy red wine. The finish is relatively long and spicy, with bitter chocolate orange. (Travel Retail exclusive)
