Another great Toshan has arrived at the Temple: Auchentoshan 22 Year Old 1998 bottled exclusively for the Dram Brothers Whisky Society Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Only 67 bottles were released and the last one - no 67 - is now in the collection. Happy!


You'll fine another two new videos in Publications and several new tasting notes as our liquid adventure continues. I even got my hands on a 1970s stash of Glentoshan 5 Year Old for the Italian market. Guess what? It's still very, very tasty!


I recently celebrated my 51st birthday and for the occasion I have released no less than 5 new whisky videos (check Publications) and several new tasting notes, making the total of enjoyed Auchentoshan now a whopping 241! Enjoy.


Be sure to check out the tasting notes section, as no less than 6 new have been added. More to come as over the coming holidays I'll try another 6 of my favorite Lowlander. Enjoy.


It's nice to have friends all over the place. Malts of Scotland recently launched an Auchentoshan 2000 Marsala Wine Cask for the German delicatessen shop Der Feinschmecker and that made it tricky to get a hold of it. Enter Heiko, my German friend, and in less than two weeks the bottle got a nice spot in the Toshan Temple.


It's been a few good weeks for the Toshan Man. Not only was I able to release my very own Auchentoshan in the Artist Series from MMM (Mark & Manny's Malt), but I also scored the latest Malts of Scotland release, two Distillery Exclusives and a set of bottles from Douglas Laing's highly anticipated Halloween 2020 release. Slàinte!


The Asian triptych is now complete. It took close to military manoeuvres, but besides the 1990 for China and the 1987 for Singapore, I have now also added the 31 years old Auchentosan 1987 for Taiwan to the collection. With a big thank you to my friend Keith in Singapore to make this happen.
