General description

Шотландец в ирландском стиле, спирты тройной дистиляции. Ваттинг бурбонных и хересных бочек (80:20%). Неплохое соотношение цена-качество.

Nose

Приятный холодный сладкий нос, ванильность, сладость красных фруктов (хересные бочки напоминают о себе). На втором плане - ореховые полутона

Palate

Сладость красных фруктов, цитрусы (корка апельсина, мандарин), пощипывание имбиря, танинная горечь, лёгкая ореховость

Finish

Слегка вяжущий, холодный, приятный. Чувствуются танины и имбирная горечь

Another good bottle from Auchentoshan. I really enjoyed the sweet caramel flavor of this. Not a particularly “complex” whisky but nice overall. I still pick up a bottle of this occasionally which is probably the best indicator.

Triple distilled, so its very smooth, but unfortunately very few flavor profiles that i can discern. A tad too flimsy and weak for my taste. I prefer the 43% version compared to this offering. I still like the distillery though and I think this would make a great starter whisky.

Fine triple distilled lowlander. Perfect for Single Malt newbies.

Nose

My first impression was marzipan, then bright fruits, a bit vanilla. Pretty smooth and tender.

Almonds, pea, honey mixed with a bit of oak and vanilla. Very smooth again. Almost refreshing.
