  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A very light dram that is fine for a session dram but not particularly rewarding.
    • Nose
      Nougat, sugared almonds, a little vanilla and candied fruits.
    • Taste
      Quite creamy with white wine notes and its also buttery.

      There is some notes of butter cream mixed in with a little pear.
    • Finish
      Approaching medium.

    Wish the contents would live up to it's label. Nice looking bottle but the contents is slightly disappointing. It's not bad but it's more the alcohol that does the tasting as the oak. It's drinkable but there are better Auchentoshan's around, like the Three Wood.
