Auchentoshan 1991 (Coopers Choice)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Auchentoshan

The Coopers Choice Coopers Choice is a brand of the Vintage Malt Whisky Co, an independent bottler founded in 1992. They’re mostly known for Finlaggan and Ileach, their undisclosed Islay malts.

Auchentoshan 1991 Coopers ChoiceThe Coopers Choice range is a selection of single cask bottlings covering all ages and all regions of Scotland.


Auchentoshan 17 yo 1991
(43%, Coopers Choice 2009)

Nose: grassy and slightly cheesy. Mashed potatoes. Not really fruity, although it develops on nice lemon candy. A few hints of linseed oil. Too bad there’s not enough freshness to make the citrus stand out. Mouth: very sweet, lemon candy again. Hints of peppermint gum and pepper. Develops on grainy notes, like a flavoured vodka. Finish: sweet, grainy and slightly grassy.

Well, it didn’t impress me at all. One for real Auchentoshan fans perhaps? Around € 50.

Score: 56/100
