The sweetness of this dram is almost too heavy, but the wood spices keep it in balance. The nose is very nice, the finish a bit short. – Rating: 82/100

The fruit flavours taste a bit artificial and the finish is one of the shortest I have experienced in a single malt, but for the rather cheap price it is okay-ish and a step up from the Springwood. – Rating: 74/100

Quite immature but still smooth because of the triple distillation, a dram for moments when you wish to avoid flavourfulness. – Rating: 67/100

Auchentoshan 35 yo 1975 Bourbon Matured

March 3, 2013

Even afer 35 years the wood only contributes a nice spiciness without overpowering the fruit. – Rating: 88/100

Auchentoshan 1990 Silveroak

This malt has a very nice fruity and creamy base that is enhanced by rather strong wood spices. – Rating: 85/100

Very floral, but in a good way. There is a minimal soapiness to it but it is too faint to call it a flaw. Quite unusual. – Rating: 84/100

Even though it has been fully matured in wine casks, the Bordeaux does not overpower the whisky. Very smooth on the palate but also forceful at the same time. – Rating: 85/100

Auchentoshan 1998/2011 James MacArthur

March 15, 2012

Triple distillation and a refill cask make this an extremely subtle dram. You may well give it a try, if you like that ultra-light style, but this doesn’t cut it for me – Rating: 63/100

A smooth Lowland malt that is quite pleasant on the palate, but the finish is over much too soon. – Rating: 78/100

The only good thing I can say about this expression is that it is discontinued. If you happen to find a bottle, avoid it! This is a perfect example of an NAS statement used to disguise immature whisky. – Score: 55/100

Very complex, you can find something different in every dram. But still not my favourite. – Score: 82/100
