To The Eye Golden honey. To The Nose Creme brulee, aburst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan. To The Tongue Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime. To The End Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - (Tried & True Award)- Pale gold color. The vivid aroma comes right at you from the first inhalation as the fragrance features dry breakfast cereal, multigrain bread dough, baker’s yeast, cigarette tobacco. Flavor profile is narrower than the generous bouquet but its concentration on the desert dry malt is what’s so attractive from entry through finish.
Fruity and vegetal scent, in equal measures. Allowed to sit, it shows more caramel, even a light Sherry-ish character. Lots of lovely caramel flavor, with a baking spice finish. Soft, smooth and very sippable. Good value.
