    an old Auchentoshan, to see if it was better before!
    • Nose
      caramel, with vanilla you could think of a bourbon!
      well soaked wood, cream, crushed and cooked stones
    • Taste
      the sensation of an old rum, very sweet and woody, a little toasted, a rum that would have taken on the barrel in full sun, quite tenacious this sensation.
      strong spices, strong caramel, almost burnt,
      cooked red fruits, dried out
      acidity back
    • Finish
      feeling of medium to long, on the same flavors, which extend pleasantly.

    Rather entertaining Auchentoshan but I would expect there are better 1975 releases but this is good.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Quite strong dark caramel in my opinion not burned but close to the edge. Strong sugary notes, a leather touch. Sour apples and gooseberries. Interesting nose!
    • Taste

      Blind I would not have guessed this as 55.4% like Mark already stated: very drinkable. Creamy, honey, burned caramel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Burned and somewhat bitter caramel, quite woody and spicy. I though it would go towards a drying finish but it completely turns around into a mouth watering finish! Nice surprise. Some red fruits emerge.

    What really stands out is the very intense taste of lovage and celery. A really savoury and unusual taste and finish.

    https: // wh This is a slightly delicious series and is perfect for when you want to accent your Auchentoshan 1975! Color: Extraordinary egg Lowland Nose: bitter taste of greasy tea feeling leaf Attack: baptism of toothpick and shiitake sensation unexpectedly smooth Body: just right metabolism Taste: alcohol sensation modestly little mountain wasabi feeling is a sense of brush and splendid Astringency of sum rather than competition glass feeling Thin cocoa gish with the passage of priority time Finish: delicacy of sinky bamboo Finish: exaggerating a deliciously delicious flavor of bamboo and a delicious scattering with Ibigakko Egga astringent Auchentoshan. It is one that seems to be enjoyable considerably over time. isky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsvnziwgh

    Yes, you have to hand it to the old Toshans. They are very good indeed. The Distillery Archive is proving to be very interesting.
    • Nose
      The nose is dominated by burnt caramel and exhibits a sour touch. Gooseberries, I'd say, but the sour ones, rather than the sweet ones. Obviously caramel and vanilla are never far away, but sugar candy and butterscotch take command.
    • Taste
      Despite the 55,4% ABV, this Toshan is easily drinkable and only mildly spicy. Very creamy with honey and some furniture polish. Strangely enough (or not!), this one does not exhibit the surprising trace of smoke, like I got in the 1966. This Toshan does have a lot of oak on the palate.
    • Finish
      The finish is nice and long, but with a bitter death.
