- What a beautiful
Auchentoshan. Definitively worthy of being bottled under the Save Lars Whisky
The nose is light and
delicate on vanilla, citrus and pears. Underneath is a hint of pastry. Some
coconut in the distance and something that makes me think of peach. It even
boasts a nice trace of smoke; obviously from the wood. Adding a teaspoon of
water sprinkles the whole with icing sugar, but also brings out some pineapple
and even white chocolate. Very nice nose.
On the palate, it
shows great strength with a round mouthfeel. Slightly oily. White pepper,
ginger and liquorice. The white fruit and citrus reappear midpalate and develop
beautifully. The citrus evolves towards Sevilla oranges and even grapefruit,
giving it a light and beautiful bitterness. But the oak rears its head as well.
Diluted, the oak becomes a touch louder even.
The finish is medium
long and warm, but above all beautifully bittersweet.
