Well, that previous PX Cask at the distillery proved very successful as it was it was finished in a month! The good news is: the new cask has been started and I've got mine already! It's another PX - cask #2547 - and simply mouth watering! Enjoy.

A new cask was recently introduced in the Bottle Your Own program: Auchentoshan 2005 PX Cask 135. Thanks to our friends at the distillery, I as able to add a few of these - with special labels - to the collection. I am also very, very chuffed with the impossible to get Auchentoshan & Ale can (albeit emtpy, never used, so the top is open).

A couple of new bottles have been added to the collection, including a blue decanter of Auchentoshan 25 Year Old from the early 1990s. We now have over 100 official Auchentoshan in the collection.

In 2014, I was able to interview Rachel Barrie for my book. This video has never before been shown, but with Rachel leaving Auchentoshan, I would like to offer this as a going away present to all Toshan Men and Women. Enjoy!

Rachel Barrie, the Master Blender at Auchentoshan, is taking up the position of Whisky Maker at the BenRiach company, leaving my fav distillery - without a shred of a doubt in very good hands. Nevertheless, she will be sorely missed. I have come to known Mrs Barrie as a passionate professional with a warm heart and therefor I think a little tribute is in order. You can find it in the Toshan Tales. Best of luck, Rachel, and thank you for everything!

Three new additions to the collection today: two Distillery Casks and a Warehouse edition from Malts of Scotland. All of them very, very good. This brings the collection of full bottles (70 & 100ml) to 170!

Today is my 47th birthday. Dearly Beloved got me a grand gift indeed: an Auchentoshan 1998 Cask Head. Very happy with that!
