Whisky Reviews for Auchentoshan 2000 DD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.75 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, lively 12-year-old luulander, somewhat discouraging tablets and medical notes, well, let them be for a change, the aroma is generally good, the taste / aftertaste is pleasing with saturation and strength - the degrees of alcohol have gone in the right direction, is non-alcoholic,
    • Nose
      Herbaceous citrus, green grass after spring rain, lemon slices in tea, rhubarb, anise, the smell of pills in the shell, askorutin, some medicinal plant (motherwort?), Lacquer-acetone notes in the background, after a while the oak gets out creamy tones, honey aromas.
    • Taste
      Sweet, coated tablets, pepper, oak.
    • Finish
      Warming, lemon peels in sweet tea, creamy colors, a little oak in the background, light acidity.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I had already heard
    good things about this Tosha, but I am not thrilled. Unless you add enough
    water. Swims like the best and then turns into a lovely dram. Around 60 EUR,
    but I am not sure it is still available.
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet and
      sour on vanilla, grain cookies and citrus fruit. Grapefruit and lime. Mildly spicy giving it
      a piquant nose. Hint of almonds and lemon grass. Even some young cheese.
      Typical Auchentoshan without being spectacular. With water, it becomes a lot
      better. Then it turns into Limoncello on steroids.
    • Taste
      It is piquant on the
      palate. Loads of pepper, even chili, precede the rather loud citrus. Honey and
      some cardamom follow. Vanilla, of course. I am still not all that impressed,
      although there is nothing wrong with it. Nothing jumps out. However, if you add
      a full teaspoon of water, it becomes a lot more interesting. Citrus, almonds,
      pepper, cardamom and a wonderful trace of woodsmoke.
    • Finish
      The finish is quite
      short, on more citrus and pepper, even diluted.
