Light, delicate, fruity (citrus, apple), spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg)
Soft, spicy (nutmeg, ginger, pepper), fruity (tangerines, kiwi, pineapple, lemons, apples)
Rather short, fruity, spicy
This is a sharper woodland. Reciprocated wet wood, a little bit of essential fruit (pear / grape), a slightly crisp feel that is also pungent and malt. Chocolate. Malting and spice will bring a little bit younger to the liking. No, it's nothing special.
This is drier and thinner than the previous one. Immediately the boat comes from sweet jam (grape) and bitter bitter bitter wood. In the mouth this is a bit peppery than the previous one. Mortality is youthful. Wood seems to be bigger than that.
- Smooth whisky, very nice.
Cinnamon and nutmeg, toasted vanilla and candied orange.
Spiced apple, smooth chocolate and maple candy.
Warm and spiced orange with brown sugar.
surprisingly fruity Auchentoshan that does not disappoint. I have only two
points of criticism. In my opinion, it could do with a higher ABV (like the

aromas emerges. Apple pie with vanilla ice, lemon juice, something dusty that I

Lowland spirit. Hurray, a good start!
mouthfeel with an immediate burst of fruit and spices. Ginger budges in, which
is no surprise. It is even more fruity on the palate than on the nose. A small
fruit salad with tangerines from a can, pineapple on syrup and some apples in
the mix. Peach and apricot too. Kiwi! Midpalate it turns a bit floral.
finish is rather short, but does remain juicy with a wonderfully warm spiciness
and a hint of brown sugar.
- Nose: Pockets of spicy nutmeg float upon a calming vanilla.
Palate: A fruitiness follows on the vanilla sea alongside the nutmeg. Orange buoys bob up and down, sharp and fresh.
Finish: A flock of seagulls made of brown sugar flutter by, completing the picturesque scene perfectly. Bliss.
- Producer's Note

Spiced apple, smooth chocolate caramel, maple
candy and a velvety mouthfeel
