Nose

Well, its hard to say on the nose. I get some toffee, cocoa, blood oranges, but also some lemon zest and juicy pears. Wait… after a few moments some notes of espresso and cloves shine through. Yes, this was most likely a sherry cask. Anyway, it is very soft and sweet.

Taste

On the palate, it is silky soft, but now it’s all about the citrus fruit. Ginger, white pepper, cloves and a hint of saffron, but also some liquorice. The fruit turns candied and some fresh figs kick in. There is also a grand trace of woodsmoke! This is fun and does give it some extra depth. Nice balance! 

Finish

The finish is wonderfully long on orangettes above a smouldering fire and again confirms the beautiful balance between the fruity spirit on the one hand and the spiciness of the wood on the other.

Comments

Yes, this is a fantastic Auchentoshan indeed.

Nose

Lemon zest, cacao, some orange, pear and clove. Very citrusy. 

Taste

Sweet and I can’t help thinking that this whisky reminds me of candy. Of all different kinds! And figs. Balanced indeed! 

Finish

Pleasant, balanced and finishes with notes of cacao and orange. Quiet long, and the citrus comes again.
