    elements.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry hogsheads.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    For a 17 year old sherry matured whisky, 40 EUR is
    anything but expensive. It is very good, but with a loose screw, if you take my
    meaning.
    • Nose
      Aside from quite a bit of citrus and the typical
      floral character of Auchentoshan, I also get dried apricots, sweet barley,
      raisins, marzipan and Cointreau. Very sweet and appealing.
    • Taste
      It is a bit oily and spicy (cloves, cinnamon, white
      pepper) on the palate. Blood oranges and caramel take center stage. But it is
      also a bit spirity and rough, with a carton taste that brings it down a few
      notches.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and spicy with toffee at the last
      breath.
