    `Auchentoshan American Oak NAS / 40%`
    The aroma is mild, oiled, caramel shades, dried bananas, porridge from nuts, a little cinnamon and pepper. The taste is light, sweet-bitter, a little sweet and hot spices, nuts, coconut in the distance. The finish is medium length, empty, light spices and cinnamon.

    Faceless and uninteresting whisky, but you can't call it a failure either. It is easy and pleasant to drink, but something “sniffing out” in it is straightforward, well, very difficult. Such a release should be in the lowest price category of molts that are designed for mass consumption. By the way, it is not cheap, so there is no reason to buy it.

    I really like it because of smell. Its very relaxing even if I am aware that taste after that disappoints a little (but of course, its NAS)

  5. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    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 ...

  6. Kaleva scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Useless whisky. Very young and underdeveloped, unpleasantly spirituous on the nose. Very malty with bitter aftertaste. I have no idea who will buy it second time after tasting once.
    • Nose
      Rather sharp, spirituous, vanilla, lemon zest, green apple, honey notes
    • Taste
      Malty, spicy, creamy, a bit sweet and buttery
    • Finish
      Short, warm, malty, slightly bitter

    Very light whisky, little Lowland style. Fresh nose, lemony. Taste gives more fresh fruit and vanilla. Short aftertaste.
