    Sexy

    Malts of Scotland – the German independent bottler – found a beauty of a sherry hogshead in the warehouse, that was filled with my favorite Lowlander’s triple distilled spirit in 2000. The Auchentoshan matured for 18 years before the cask yielded 329 bottles at cask strength. Two bottles made it my way and I’m very happy with them.

    Hello, there, darling! You smell great! And what lovely legs… Sexy! I hasten to add that I’m talking about the whisky, not to my wife (although she is all that too). A beautiful aroma of overripe peach, mildly rotting oranges (I really like that) and lots of red and blueberries. That is quickly followed by cinnamon and saffron. A touch of caramel and vanilla kick in. Fresh, elegant, provocative and very mature (still talking about the whisky, mind you). I am already in seventh heaven.

    The first sip is soft and mildly spicy, very fuity and sweet, but it quickly becomes more severe and spicy, making my saliva glands go into overdrive. The ABV shows on the palate. Wonderfully fruity notes – again berries, cherries and peach – are wrapped up in delicious sweetness like caramel paste and mokatine. Cinnamon and saffron return, upholstered with some nutmeg. And suddenly, midpalate, a handful of raisins and nuts appear. Hazelnuts and walnuts. Boy, this is truly complex and delicious. Is there such a thing as eight heaven?

    And then there is that unbridledly fruity, riotous and grand finish that just lingers forever.

    Did I only order two bottles of this? Gonna hurry and get me two more! With a big thank you for the very generous sample to my whisky buddy Manny.

    A great drop! Creamy and voluminous dark, so far I had no comparable bottling in the glass. Complex, complex, varied ... at the moment I do not know what to write ... This Auchentoshan is simply amazing!

    • Nose
      The orange tannin in the Premium Snifter shines orange and slightly dim, and the streaks sticking to the glass wall dissolve many long and viscous drops. Slightly musty and decayed fruit notes dominate the first impression, dark and heavy berry flavor sticks in the glass, velvety vineyard peaches and sweet sugar slowly rise. The nose is intertwined and difficult to open, gradually showing vanilla, caramelized sugar and sweeter red berries. Currants and hints of sweet cherries end in deep black blackberries and black currants. The nose is fruity and fresh at the same time, at the same time dignified and heavy ... The salivation is stimulated, long story short: I want to finally taste the Auchentoshan!
    • Taste
      Clear and fruity harsh, the first sip flows through the mouth. Burnt sugar and a hint of cinnamon immediately stimulate the salivation, toasted aromas and velvety peaches combine with creamy caramel and an indefinable spice note. Slowly, the alcohol is noticeable and leaves a slight tingling and prickling on the tongue. The salivation is stimulated again, creamy and velvety stick the dark and voluminous fruit flavors on the palate. Another sip is marked by extreme creaminess and dark fruit bouquet, my salivation is almost unrestrained while pleasant sharpness between tongue and palate sticks. Cherries, redcurrants, blackberries, caramel, dates, stick tasty on the palate, creamy and intense make hazelnuts and walnuts noticeable. The taste is incredibly complex and complex.
    • Finish
      Long and complex.

    Again one of those ingenious Lowland style Auchentoshans. Fresh bright aromas starting with grapes which are then getting darker and darker until at some point the whole range of fruit aromas is present. very mild and balanced, perfect maturing time. Long and spicy finish with a persistent creamy fruit

    The distillery can do something, you just have to choose carefully. Especially the sherry ripeness often appeals to me, and this one meets the taste again. The distillery character goes down a bit in this bottling, the barrel has done a lot of work in the 19 years.
    Delicious!
    • Nose
      In the nose, you already notice that you have to call the whisky almost thick, above all, it seems to me tempting somber and pleasant way somehow musty. Warm, overripe fruit, especially peach peel and crushed dark berries from which thickened juice seeps. Ripe and heavy, warm caramel, a hint of vanilla.
    • Taste
      The impressions are repeated in the mouth, raisins and dried fruits, warm peach, with nuts. First it flows a little softer and more fluid, then gradually it gets thicker and spicier, it gets almost sticky. Creamy and dark, slightly alcoholic, here you can probably experiment with the addition of water.
    • Finish
      The finish is extremely long with a lasting warming feeling, very interwoven fruit-spice notes, after some time the nuts come up again on the palate.

    A good nose, but further, so much spirits and youth, just washed a barrel of sherry, no words, sorry ...

    I was very impressed at first. The Auchentoshan is super yummy and tasty, quite complex and well matured. There are no miss notes or anything disturbing. BUT: after the second dram, unfortunately, super boring. Too good, a lot of sherry, little distillery, hardly any rough edges.
