Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 380: Glentoshan 5 Year Old Pure Malt
Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, tries a golden oldie Glentoshan. What? Yup. This Pure Malt from the 1970s appeared as Glentoshan on the Italian market. Glen Grant was the most popular malt – and is still very popular – so then-owners of Auchentoshan decided to launch their triple distilled malt with ‘Glen’ in the name. It worked. Glentoshan sold very well. Some cases were recently discovered in an Italian basement and Mark was able to secure 6 bottles. But would it still be tasty? The screwcap was tight, the tax seal in perfect condition and the fill level was in the upper neck. Very well preserved, so Mark’s hopes are high.
