  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Nice and uncomplicated nose, but in the mouth I'm just annoyed by the 40%, that doesn't help the already monotonous whisky anyway.
    • Nose
      quite light, floral, lots of vanilla, creamy, a little green apple, a little marzipan, slightly nutty, very lightly grated lemon peel, everything mixed in a spoonful of yoghurt, very pleasant
    • Taste
      starts floral, light sweetness, vanilla, yes also apple, quite thin from the mouthfeel, I just don't understand why you dilute to 40%, if you make your mouth full enough, then enough taste will come through
    • Finish
      Apple, slightly sweet, a few nuts, herbs, becoming more floral, not very long, but it leaves a fresh feeling in the mouth

  2. pdby scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Compared to Superstych, tried just a little earlier, this is weak. Not hooked.
    • Nose
      Ripe pear, sweet apples, apple jam, perfume, liquor, milk chocolate, honey, caramel.
    • Taste
      Meets notes of coffee, ginger, dark chocolate, nectarines.
    • Finish
      Empty, short, bitterness of perfume with chocolate.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Incidentally, the Auchentoshan memory is not in my daily form, I have tried several times and compared directly.
    I still think it's really delicious, with under € 30 a bargain, but I also like Auchentoshan. ;-)
    • Nose
      I did not have the 10s for a long time (since some design changes) and was surprised at first - is that Auchentoshan? When pouring and in the first minutes there is the typical, fruity (somewhat artificial) Auchentoshan house aroma! It passes, then honey, caramel, a hint of banana is still there, a little salty freshness.
    • Taste
      As you enter, a somewhat artificial, slightly tropical-bitter Auchentoshan fruit salad rushes by again, then milk chocolate, honey, some salt and pepper, medium-bodied, nice mouthfeel, not too thin, and after a while also good wood and spice. Really delicious.
    • Finish
      medium long, dry, spicy, cocoa, mild pepper

    Great value, and reasonably complex for a 10 yo.
    • Nose

    • Taste

      sea, oil, pine bark, vanilla
    • Finish
      70 70
      too short, the worst thing for this baby

  7. Martin1965 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Honey, sea, salt, pine, earthy, vanilla
    • Taste
      Earthy, malt, very fine smoke, then comes a dry saltiness
    • Finish
      Medium length and a pleasant saltiness

      Very nice 10er island paint. Many marine associations.

  8. schengel10 scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    A simple good average Malt - the entry into the Jura Range. Unfortunately dyed, cool filtered and bottled with only 40%!
    • Nose
      flowery, fruity (apple, pear), sweet, honey, subtle vanilla note;
    • Taste
      restrained slightly oily onset, low smoke (?), tingling, spicy, noticeably fruity (compote, oranges), sweet malt, honey, creamy;
    • Finish
      medium length finish; slightly bitter in the finish;
