  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Yes, this is the better work by Auchentsohan and I can recommend it heartily. Around 110. I happily bought two!
    • Nose
      Oh, yes! What a lovely nose indeed! Auchentoshan at its best. Bourbon barrel? Then how is it that this almost smells tropical? I get all kinds of fruit with mango in the lead. But also pineapple, pears, kiwi, banana and gooseberries. A hint of mandarin. Some toasted oak too. But so, so lovely. I am a happy camper.
    • Taste
      Despite the high ABV, the arrival is soft. Only after the malt has caressed your tongue for half a minute will you feel its power. Less tropical than the nose, but still very fruity with the emphasis on citrus. Think pink grapefruit and mandarin. Lemongrass. Liquorice. 
    • Finish
      The long finish leaves the mouth fairly dry.

  4. Rino Rotten scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is a beautiful, fruity (though not in the sense of an excotic fruit basket), subtle whisky.
    The finish is lovely, long and lingering.

    Nose
    Fruity, apple, pineapple, peach, cuberdons, vanilla, fresh green herbs, mint. Round, very nice. Pleasently sweet. The fruits are fresh and juicy. Baked vanilla cake. Banana. Lemon.

    Palate
    Arrival is filled with the fresh juicy fruits again. Apple, pineapple and peaches return. Grapes join in. It’s fresh, almost a summer dram. Not super complex, but the high level of fruitiness more than make up for that. A little bit of wood in there, in the background.

    Finish
    Lemon zest and some grassy notes. Medium long.
