    • Nose
      85 85
      Surprisingly salty, quite a fair bit of coastal notes, from a triple distilled Lowland distillery. Quite oaky, kind of perfumy, with some soft fruitiness.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Salty arrival, with hints of bitter oak. The bitterness gets stronger over time, and pretty hot too on the tongue.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Faint saltiness, very bitter tea/coffee.

  9. Gatopardo scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Nice nose, fails in the palate ans the expectations about a noble 18 years old. Like the finish too. Good whisky for summer. Good daily dram, you will enjoy, but that is the problem, price and age don't match with definition of "daily dram"
    • Nose
      Typical Auchentoshan trademark. Cereal, lemon, vanilla, honey, ginger, dried seaweed, wasabi. That green tea notes that shows the label appears sometimes. Green apple. Elegant and discrete, but with nice evolution. Let it breath
    • Taste
      Floral, bit sour, dry, delicate, green tea, lemon marmalade. Hints of oak
    • Finish
      Incredible long for this kind of whisky. Very hot. Like when you eat wasabi. But not overwhelming .
