At last the QE2 Crystal Ship's Decanter has found its way into the Toshan Man Collection. A long time have I been looking for this one. Decanter 1138 is now proudly on display in the Toshan Temple.
Two new bottles were added to the collection, both Special Reserve Blended Scotches by the people from Auchentoshan, to commemorate the shipyards on the Clydebank. I was able to get my hands on a bottling from 1986 and one from 1994.
Some nice new acquisitions to the collection: Auchentoshan 21 Year Old Lord Provost, a Auchentoshan 2008 Bordeaux Cask 201 available only at the distillery, The Virgin Oak batch 2 and an 1980s miniature of Auchentoshan 10 Year Old. Happy days!
Some nice new acquisitions to the collection: Auchentoshan 12 Year Old in celebration of the new Visitor Center Opening, a 25 year old in red ceramic, a hard-to-find mini from Malts of Scotland and a new independent bottling from... Belgium! The collection is now 160 full bottles strong.
Just celebrated my 46th birthday with a video of the new Auchentoshan Blood Oak and added that bottle, along with the new Auchentoshan 24 Year Old Noble Oak, to the collection!
Ah, new acquisitions! The Blood Oak has finally made it to my corner of the world and I was also able to score the latest Bottle Your Own from the distillery: a fantastic single oloroso sherry cask at 60,1%!
I have just added no less than 8 new tasting notes. This brings the total to 153 tasting notes. Enjoy!
After adding the second Auchentoshan 50yo 1957 to the collection, I am proud to announce that I was just able to score the Auchentoshan 44 Year Old 1966 for the collection as well. Proud!
So where have I been for the last six months, you wonder? Completely renovating my house took up half a year, but now it is done. And of course, the Toshan Man Collection got a prominent place in the new living room. Check it out here!
As promised, new tasting notes have just been added for four expressions. Three independents and the new official release of the Auchentoshan 1988 Wine Cask Finish, a 25 Year Old beauty. That brings the total of tasting notes at 143!
Dear Toshan Men & Woman - here is to your good health. May all your dreams come true in 2015!
Santa arrived a bit early in Belgium and dropped off a nice bottle of Auchentoshan 1984 at the Toshan Man HQ. It was bottled in 2004 by Signatory Vintage. Lovely dumpy addition to the collection!
Apologies for the long silence, but I moved house and had a lot of work packing up my collection safely, but now I'm back in business. Expect more info soon!
No less than 7 new tasting notes can now be found online, including a single cask from 1966! Check them out here. That now means a total of 139 tasting notes!
It had been a while since I updated this website (with my apologies), but today I have added two new items to my collection: a tablecloth as seen at whisky festivals and a misprinted one-of-a-kind box. Check it out! Also, some new tasting notes will be uploaded soon!
I'm always looking for samples, so contact me for a trade/sale!
I have been on the lookout for this limited edition decanter for a long time! Now, decanter 1138 is part of the Toshan Temple. This crystal ships decanter was sold only on the QE2 cruise ship and is truly liquid history.
To celebrate 100 years of 'Excellence & Enterprise' on the Clydebank, the proprietors of Auchentoshan Distillery released the Clydebank Special Reserve Blend. I was able to add a 19686 and 1994 bottling to the collection.
I had some recent success at an auction and was able to add these beauties to the Toshan Temple. I am especially chuffed with the Auchentoshan 21 Year Old Lord Provost's bottling, which is increasingly hard to find.
