Wemyss Malts Lemon Zest 1998 (distilled at Auchentoshan), 46%

Price: $126 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Wemyss Malts has bottled several single cask Auchentoshans in the past, and this 15 year old release is of 342 bottles, provided by a bourbon barrel. Peaches, caramel, sea salt, and developing lemonade on the nose. Sweet and fruity on the palate, with more peaches and very soft background spices. The finish dries slowly, with ginger and a hint of aniseed.£75
