First up at the Whisky Cafe, we opted for the oldest Auchentoshan available. It had been on Katherine’s list for a while and it seemed like the perfect chance to try it.
Rather than invite judgment, I stuck to neat for all the drinks in Montreal. I know I’ve said that you should drink your booze however you want, but there’s certain times to pick your battles, and a nice night out with the better half isn’t one of them.
Me: warm smell, oily mouthful, bitter chocolate notes
Katherine: sweet on the nose, flat, low peat, low alcohol, sweet
Try it? Definitely. Buy it? Yes.
