    Yes, it's not a taste explosion.
    But if you like it more elegant and like to take some time to look for the flavors, it is neat.
    There is not much, but what is there is stylish and clean.
    The distillery character also comes through.
    Good "Eichwhisky" or a beginner in a tasting.
    I wonder if the bottlings vary so much.
    Many seem to really hate this whisky (including Ralfy). I can not understand that, so this malt is not wrong.

    Faceless and uninteresting whisky, but you can’t call it direct failure either. Not worth the money.
    • Nose
      Mild, greased, caramel shades, dried bananas, nuts porridge, a little cinnamon and pepper.
    • Taste
      Light, bittersweet, a little sweet and spicy spices, nuts, coconut in the distance.
    • Finish
      Medium length, empty, light spices and cinnamon.

    Jo, is not the best whisky ever bottled, but pretty tasty. Typical Auchentoshan grassiness, not too little bourbon barrel, lots of citrus. Smaller deductions, because despite the intensive Fassreifung clearly youth is herauszuschmecken. It does not bother so much, I'll give it another try ...

      Soft, bourbon, sweet and creamy notes. Vanilla cream and coconuts. Fruity notes then come through such as citrus fruit, fruit toffees and a light, grassy touch.

      I also taste vanilla in the mouth immediately. A fine tone of oak and coconuts complement the vanilla. I also taste a creamy, light chocolate note.

      Fairly short. I taste a little pepper and grapefruit in the finish. And a slight aftertaste of vanilla.

    Simple but credible source for an entry-level malt. Good quality for its price

    It’s a bit disappointing. For this price (which is not bad at all) you should buy the ‘Classic’ instead. At least I think.

      Most interesting part of the tasting. Thin, sweet, sweet pastry, some raisin, cheap ginger ale, oak, subtle acetone.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Watery, then alcohol strikes, fermented dough, really thin.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Really short, alcohol burn dominates it.

    Okay, 80 Points
    I think, every whisky I drink, which I like, deserves the 80 Points.
    Is it a special one? No.
    Anything notable? No.
    Drinkable? Yes.
    A nice bottle for on the table while hanging out with friends? Yes.
    Cheap? Yes.
    What else do you expect from a very cheap whisky?
    The same as when you buy an 18 year old?
    It's ten times better than a Glen Talloch.
    So it still deserves the 80 points.
    No recommendation to others, but I could buy this one again (as a Auchentoshan-fan for at the end of the evening.
