    A good Auchentoshan.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity and grassy. Notes of pears and citrus fruits.
    • Taste
      Powerful with fruity and grassy, herbal aromas.  Some cereals as well.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. Becomes spicy with notes of caramel. Dry and spicy aftertaste.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Classy aperitif. A nice Auchentoshan that brings the sun into your
    glass. But I do not recommend adding water. Around 80 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh, sweet and a bit herbal. Peach and pineapple on syrup,
      dried grass and icing sugar. Hint of butter. Slowly but surely evolves towards
      citrus. Tinned mandarin. Vanilla and sweet malt. Spring in your glass! With
      water, the herbal side is more pronounced with even a hint of wet earth.
    • Taste
      The attack is powerful (for a Lowland). Quite some white pepper. Pretty
      creamy too. Citrus and white fruit (mostly pears) on the palate. Zesty. The dry
      grass returns. Pleasant prickle. Adding water brings out a hint of quinine or
      even aspirin, which I do not experience as an advantage.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and sweet.

    Bottler`s Notes:

    Colour: Straw gold.

    Nose: Syrup, pineapple, orange zest and peaches. A breath of green hay.

    Palate: Slightly waxy mouthfeel. Grassy, herby notes, dryish with a hint of white pepper. Pear Helene with chocolate sauce.

    Conclusion: Class offering from this Lowland distillery.
