Today we’re tasting an IB Toshan, bottled by Duncan Taylor in a line called “BattleHill” to commemorate battles fought by the highland clans in the 16 century, near Huntly. This line of bottling includes  Imperial, Auchentoshan,  Macallan , Aberlour and Auchentoshan. This one is an entry level bottling at 43%,

Nose : green apples and pears fruit basket. Followed by zest, vanilla and sugar-baked apples.
Palate : Sweet, malty with sprinkles of lemon on top if pear pie.

Finish : Short-medium with some Citrus and spices.

A worthy dram if not very complex, it’s pleasant, a bit one dimensional if I might add, but would fit nicely as a summer sipper without too much analyzing, we all need those too.

Score: 79/100
