  1. markjedi1 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The Auchentoshan Select is, since the rebranding in 2008, hard to find at retailers, since it was moved to the duty free market. I purchased my bottle (1 Liter) directly from the distillery's online shop.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    This Lowland has no age statement.

    Definitely better than the Classic, but not as complex as the Three Wood or 12 Year Old.
    • Nose
      The nose is very fresh with green apples, oranges and even a little banana. It has a pinch of vanilla too. A little caramel or toffee in the background. Adding a few drops of water brings out some passion fruit. I like it!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
    • Taste
      On the palate, the dram is - as to be expected - sweet and very fruity with apples and lime as the main players. The drams remains very light.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
    • Finish
      The finish is short, sweet and completely biteless.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    This is a nice whisky, but that's it, just nice. Smooth thanks to triple distillation, but awfully awfully dull.
