Color
Amber
Nose

Malt, sweetness, rotten hay, 'floral honey', hint of quince, some kind of caramel cream (maybe), banana, some nut butter.

Taste

Quite similar things as in the nose, plus some undefined fruitiness; maybe some almonds.

Finish

Short; a little vanilla and malty sweetness; hints of fruitiness.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.

Malty
and fruity aroma, vanilla, banana, ripe pear, nutmeg and mint. Malty
sweetness, floral honey, eucalyptus, orange and almonds. Medium long,
spicy and malty end.

Goede kennismaking met de lowlandwhisky. Het zachte karakter van de driemaal gedestilleerde whisky

maakt de dram zeer toegankelijk. Geen grootse whisky.

My first contact with a real single malt was a bottle of this auchentoshan. I couldn´t believe that this tasty stuff is a whisky. (Before that I knew whisky only with cola - shame on me!)
 
The Auchentoshan 10 is the reason behind, that I was appointed to a single-malt-lover. happy
I think, it´s one of the best whisky for beginners!
