Whisky Reviews for Auchentoshan 2003 SMWS 5.80

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.50 points

  1. Nergal did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: A lovely, minty fresh, green aroma reminded us of eucalyptus, ivy and an Indian rubber plant. This was soon followed by the scent of pineapple upside-down cake, mango coulis as well as warm croissants with melted butter and marmalade. On the palate neat, we got grapefruit slices sprinkled with Demerara sugar, marzipan with plum jam soaked in bourbon and runny honey. Water added a floral aroma of honeysuckle before a lime posset with raspberries and caramelised hazelnut clusters appeared. A thick mouthfeel like tucking into a Pavlova with Chantilly cream and a variety of tropical fresh fruits while in
    the finish Moroccan sliced oranges with cinnamon dancing shikha.
