85/100 – Whiskybase (from one member vote)

Another bottle from the small, independent bottler The Whisky Broker. Details about this whisky from their website:

“This Speyside whisky, distilled on 17th December 1991 at Auchroisk Distillery, has been matured in oak casks for over 21 years.. On the 3rd June 2013, refill bourbon barrel numbers 102220 and 102221, were transferred into a second fill sherry hogshead (formerly containing Tomatin, sold on this website). The whisky was further matured until 28th October, when it was bottled at cask strength, aged 21 years.

This whisky has been lightly filtered to remove large particles of wood sediment from the cask, but may still contain small traces, which are visible only when bottle is left standing for a period of time.

Each bottle is individually numbered (mine is No.14 of 171).

Cask Details:
Refill Bourbon barrels 102220 & 102221
Distilled 17th December 1991
Bottled 28th October 2013
The cask yielded 171 bottles at a cask strength of 45.0% vol.”
