  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 83 points Super Administrator

    Quick hit review.

    Sour fruits with a mixture of floral, herbal and 'green' notes dominate the nose. A bit reminiscent of a young Balblair. On the palate, the bourbon casks shine through, and there is a peppery kick in the development. Light peatiness emerges, reminding me of Ailsa Bay. An interesting malt despite its youthfulness.

    RATING: 3.5/5.0 stars ≙ 83 pts → ABOVE AVERAGE

  6. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A nice, easy / light starter for a tasting lineup - or otherwise an aperitif whisky. There's enough substance to keep the serious malt person (SMP) occupied and un-bored, but not anything that would confuse or distract the average layperson drinker (ALP). Toes the line successfully, you could say.

    P.S. Could someone tell "coldsun" to reconsider his scoring metric?

      Yeasty, bready, malty, with wild meadow flowers and a dash of citrus. I also imagine I'm getting a wisp of peat smoke. Young, but not unpleasantly so. Rather nice, actually.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Yes, there's a tiny bit of peat in here - just enough to convey a sense of ashy coal smoke and darken things up a bit. Otherwise, this plays out pretty evenly on a sweet / malty / more-ish mellow vibe. Not perfect, but perfectly inoffensive.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Maize, sunflower oil and a whiff of peat smoke. Works just fine.

  9. ctu scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Probably the best I've tasted from the TLDC line.
    • Nose
      Flowers, honey, cereal, pepper.
    • Taste
      Spicy, strong flavors. More pepper, flowers, honey, salted caramel.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, sweet.

  10. OLdBlack did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is NO Whisky from the Auchnagie distillery and it contains NO Whisky from this Long closed distillery. It is a blended malt created from modern single malts and the Lost Distillery Company is only trying to create an "Auchnagie-style" Blended Malt Whisky.
