Whisky Reviews for Auchentoshan 16-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.63 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The smell of a classic ex-bourbon whisky bottled on the dots, ripe and full, the youthful outrage has disappeared, but the bitterness of the upper age is not yet apparent. In the mouth and on the palate, but then shows the oak, in a pleasant way, especially the impression of brittle I like. The alleged ease of the Lowlander one looks in vain.
    • Nose
      Many intense yellow fruits, mirabelles, quinces and pear, ripe and sweet, but also slightly sour, a rich hint of vanilla, freshly cut grass in the background, despite these flavors, the whisky does not seem fresh, but ripe and full, like the rich colors of one sunny autumnal late afternoon.
    • Taste
      The body is soft and stands in contrast to a strong onset, tart vanilla with bitter notes, pronounced cereal notes, now also spicy wood, but only in the background, brittle, then a fruity and delicate acidity
    • Finish
      The oak is stronger without dominating, the fruity impressions are almost gone, leaving behind bitter-sweet impressions of burnt sugar and vanilla.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    One of the best Auchentoshans I've tasted so far, quite Littlemill-ish. Theo: It's nice that your palate left feeling is wonderfully cleaned, but getting someone else's notes blind through Google Translate may not be such a great idea: 'D
    • Nose
      Crême brûllée, cereals, porridge, citrus and caramel. With water some blood orange.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, caramel, hay, peach, grain, banana and oak. Water brings up an odd fishy note.
    • Finish
      Caramel, vanilla, cereals, coconut, almond and lime.

  3. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He has something. These cereal and spice / herbal notes make it interesting. I'm positively surprised.
    • Nose
      A lot of vanilla. There is also coconut. But also a lot of grain. Rather fresh grain. In addition, I have tangerines. Yellow apple. Pears (rather the shell with some pulp). Some sugared lemon. Flower meadow. Chamomile. Mint. Fresh sawdust.
    • Taste
      First caramel. Flowerhoney. Then comes a note like in a flower shop. Now a bit of anise, clove, lemon balm and ginger. Even maybe some juniper. After that, the wood gets a bit wider. Freshly cut branches.
    • Finish
      Vanilla. The oak gets stronger and it gets spicier. The grain comes through again. Now it is drier.

  4. LukasJakubDrabek scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Total bitter-sour. Pretty nice, but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Flower scent (perhaps nettle), boiled root vegetables, citric acid, green apple, vanilla, marzipan, fresh peas. With water: walnuts, nut, dried lemon peel, freshly cut branch of fruit tree, banana peel.
    • Taste
      Pepper, mint, grass, cloves. With water: vineyard peach, marzipan, almonds, lemon peel, apricot kernel, pear compote (infusion), acacia honey.
    • Finish
      Finishing into bitter-acid. Oatmeal, chopped grass stalk or grape seed, ginger. With water: immature grape.

  7. whiskytheo did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is another of the old bottlings that are almost gone.
    • Nose
      Beautiful sweet vanilla with light woody influences followed by soft warm honey and toffee.
    • Taste
      At first woody followed by creamy vanilla with light notes of light lemon, stone fruit and dried grass.
    • Finish
      The palate is left feeling wonderfully cleaned and renewed.

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is a very exciting and feisty Auchentoshan, with the best a bourbon
    barrel has to offer. It is the kind of Auchentoshan that makes people tell me
    â€
    • Nose
      The nose is very rich and fruity with loads of good stuff like citrus,
      vanilla, maraschino cherries, syrup waffles, coconut and even some chocolate
      (Bounty?) and nougat. Wonderful.
    • Taste
      The ABV means business on the palate, nice and feisty. But it does not
      need water. It is very sweet and creamy. Reminds me somewhat of pastry. Ripe
      pineapples, pears (sirop de <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Liege),
      almonds, liquorice. A little spicy, mostly cinnamon. Mon cheri. Macarons with
      coconut. This is just great.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length, sweet and spicy.

  10. mmaclean scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    "Producer`s Tasting NotesGolden barley in color with a medium body.The nose is a gorgeous sweet vanilla with light woody influences followed by soft, warm honey flavors at the rear.The palate is initially woody, followed by hints of creamy vanilla with a light suggestion of tangerine zest. The palate is left feeling wonderfully cleansed and refreshed."TWE
