Whisky Reviews for Auchentoshan 18-year-old
22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.93 points
- One of these bottlings that are not baaaad, but meh... rather forgetable and not exiting at all. Buy for around 60 EUR if you must but be aware that this 18 is not on the forefront of what 18 yo whiskies are capable of... ;-)

I estimated this whisky 14 years old and would have given it two more points. For 18 years he's really not very impressive.
Herbs, ash, citrus, some fresh fruit behind. Very special.
Oily, soft, honey, then the ashes, wood flavor, becoming slightly bitter.
Not very long, creamy, fruity and sweet, coffee, a hint of ash and wood spice.
- - a good single malt but a bit disappointing for the age
- not as sweet or intense as expected / hoped for,
- would have expected a bit more overall
fresh, fruity, floral, grapefruit, green apple, honey,
spicy beginning, oak, strong (old) wood aroma, light bitter substances
short mild finish;
medium-length oak-heavy finish
- A fresh, floral and yet ripe whisky, triple distilled, very clean, without corners and edges.
light, mild, floral, tangerine, lime, citrus, caramel, vanilla, trace oak;
mild, floral, fruity (light fruits, citrus), sweet, little caramel and vanilla, increasingly woody and spicy, oak;
medium length, soft, oak, tobacco, oak;
Surprisingly salty, quite a fair bit of coastal notes, from a triple distilled Lowland distillery. Quite oaky, kind of perfumy, with some soft fruitiness.
Salty arrival, with hints of bitter oak. The bitterness gets stronger over time, and pretty hot too on the tongue.
Faint saltiness, very bitter tea/coffee.
