  3. Kensay scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    the smell is not sharp, the pear is sweet, a little vanilla, it tastes soft, fruity, a little creamy, it is drunk easily, it does not feel 47 degrees in general, the aftertaste is indistinct and short, it is quickly lost. Simple drinking whisky

  4. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Balance sheet (20) I liked the fragrance, it looks like old blends. The taste is also not disgusting ... but the finish and the balance are failed (84) ... still not bad for a solyanka from 12 authors.
    • Nose
      Strange aroma ... rotten, sweet fruit and zhivotinka
    • Taste
      Fruit flavor ... sugar ... dried fruits and mushroom seasoning (21)
    • Finish
      Finish sweetly sweet ... woody ... almost instantly fading spice (21)

  6. DocF scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    These annoying marketing stories actually take my interest out of principle, but Marko's notes have also sparked my "scientific" curiosity. Whether I would now tilt 50 € whisky in cocktails, or even spend 50 € for a bottle of this ... Drinking I do it in any case like.
    • Nose
      At the beginning, burnt plastic rises from the glass, uargh. After a while, this smell disappears fortunately, now it goes to earth and hay, dry everything, in the background dried apricots and oranges, cinnamon, a hint of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Dry, hay, bite something, later caramel, cinnamon, oranges, now less dry, a touch of glue is there.
    • Finish
      Woody-dry, vanilla, ripe oranges, redcurrants, medium long, again some glue.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I have to admit, the whisky was disagreeable to me from the outset - "Bartender's," limited ... so some non-whisky people have dumped some unnamed barrels, limited to extra coal. "The New Malt Order" - pffft. But sip by sip ... but, yummy, tasty, interesting. The 50 € are not cheap, but not outrageous. But, one can take, if even a Lowland place on the shelf is free.
    • Nose
      initially slightly waxy, then very light, mild tobacco, creamy, marzipan, Toffifee, a few crumbs of speculaas, again candle wax, tobacco ... I find the typical, somewhat artificial Auchentoshan fruit notes here only very restrained in about 10 cm distance from the glass
    • Taste
      first toffee, milk chocolate, very creamy, then light pepper / ginger, cherry jam, then a bit liqueur, mixture of cherry and herbal liqueur, marzipan with dark chocolate
    • Finish
      long, sweet, Mon Chérie, marzipan

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Well, I must admit that I found the nose and finish good, but on the palate it is a bit too sharp in my book. Having said that, I can imagine this works very well in a cocktail. And that is what this one was ‘designed’ for. The New Malt Order competition will take place again this year, so we may expect to see the second annual edition in 2018.
    • Nose
      On the nose it is all very sweet and accessible on cherry pie, milk chocolate and dried apricots, but also some tobacco leaves. This is actually quite pleasant.
    • Taste
      On the palate, however, I find it a bit sharp on ginger (and a little too much to my taste), before the sweetness of the pastry shines through. The typical citrusy notes are present (more oranges than lemons in this case) and the cherries return. But it’s a tad piquant and sweet & sour – something I am not used to from my favorite Lowlander.
    • Finish
      The finish is wonderfully long and warms the mouth, which is very nice.

  10. The-Man-best-Friend scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Rarely have I had the muff of Auchentoshan so intense in the nose.
    Tingles nicely on the tongue. Sweet with milk chocolate.
    Relatively quickly he stays pleasant in my memory
