  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yes, this is a fantastic Auchentoshan indeed.
    • 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.

    • 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.
