Whisky Reviews for Auchentoshan 2003 SMWS 5.66

    This is better than any standard bottling of Auchentoshan I've had so far, but I wonder if the added flavor and body is mostly due to the higher ABV?

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Following the trails of aroma led us along paths of lush grass encapsulating the pure freshness of green vegetation that occasionally took a detour to tomato plants in a greenhouse. A sweet layer of toffee and fudge floated above a creamy undercurrent of melted butter whilst a waft of pineapple squash introduced soft fruit. The addition of water kicked into the air a puff of dry dust, perhaps from sun-baked flowerbeds as it mingled with the floral bouquet of sweetly scented flowers. The palate delivered an invigorating dash of chilli spice that interchanged with peppermint to create a tension between hot and cold. Green bell pepper revisited a crisp vibrancy that was balanced by vanilla custard before finishing with paprika sprinkled over new wood.
