Spring and summer are - for me - the ideal period to sip Auchentoshan. Hence you can find no less than 10 new tasting notes here, bringing the total up to 204. Enjoy.

At the Whisy Fair in Limburg, I met whisky artist Monique Tromp-Slegers. I was impressed by her artwork and commissioned an Auchentoshan cask head. The result is a stunning piece of art. It has been put in a prominent place in the Toshan Temple.

Malts of Scotland, the famous German bottler, recently released two Auchentoshan for the German market. A special thanks to Billy for helping me to add these to my collection!

Ah, it's been a while, but I have not been sitting still. Many new items were added to the collection, including a new Distillery Only Bordeaux Cask #3835 (both 20 and 70cl), a pen, a metal standee and - From Russia With Love - the Bartenders Malt Saint Petersburg Edition, a 12 Year Old single cask expression exclusively produced for Kirill, a famous bartender in... Saint Petersburg (doh!).

Another X-mas, another cask head. This time, it was a work of art by a French wood carver, who made this cask head to order. I must say, I am very chuffed with the result and it will get a nice spot right next to the cabinet in the Toshan Temple.

I admit, I'm quite active on whisky auction sites, as this is a place where I can sometimes find some bottles that are not yet part of the Toshan Temple. I just added two new great bottles: an old one and a new one.

I recently returned from a trip to Islay. Obviously, I traveled over Glasgow to get there. And when in Glasgow, well, you simply can't not visit Auchentoshan, certainly when you are the Toshan Man.

Ovenbird, a Glasgow based coffee roaster, offers whisky coffee. In this case, the coffee 'matured' for 12, 18 or 21 weeks on a bourbon barrel that previously held Auchentoshan whisky.

Those distillery casks seem to be very popular. More so than ever, I think. This is already the 4th this year and it's only September. This time around it is a lovely Oloroso sherry cask #34 with a very impressive color.

The newest release from my favorite Lowander is the Auchentoshan Bartender's Malt (Annual Edition 1), created by and for bartenders. A world first, I believe. So... time to refresh my knowledge of how to make a good cocktail.

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.
