Nosing:
Fruit Lemon Sweet Vanilla Tangerine, crème brûlée
Taste:
Orange Oak Spices Nuts Tangerine
Finish:
Medium with Hazelnut
Nosing:
Crème brulee, a burst of citrus and the signature nuttiness and green leafiness of Auchentoshan.
Taste:
Smooth and sweet with hints of tangerine and lime.
Finish:
Gingery and slightly drying, with a pleasant lingering nuttiness.

Triple distillation gives this Lowland whisky a refined, soft and creamy character. If you believe that Auchentoshan 12 is only suitable for beginners, you are missing an awful lot! The nose is light and sweet with a pleasant crème brûlée note. Gentle citrus fruits harmonize with raisins, honey and herbal vanilla. Tastewise, the sherry cask influence certainly adds to the complexity of this Single Malt. It's sweet, mildly fruity, and there is a hint of hazelnuts. The finish is clean, moderate and semidry. An intriguing whisky that is distinctly different from the others!

English:
An interesting example. Triple distilled SCOTCH single malt. Double cask matured (Sherry cask finish). Sounds not bad... and it is indeed an interesting whisky. Not bad at all.
Color: unfortunately not natural, so it's rather useless to write more about it. Amber
Nose: tonka beans, green pepper, star anise, vanilla, black tea, cereals
Palate: ripe banana, caramel, salt, citric
Finish: medium long, slightly sweet, bananas, star anise
I bought a miniature for about 5€
I don't know if I'll buy another bottle, but I enjoyed a dram. It's not my favorite, but it's really interesting and some of you might love it.
81/100

Deutsch:
Ein interessantes Beispiel. Dreifach destilliert SCHOTISCHER Whisky. Finished in Sherry Fässern. Klingt nicht schlecht... und er ist doch ein interessanter Whisky. Gar nicht schlecht.
Farbe: leider mit Farbstoff (Zuckerkolör). Bernstein
Nase: Tonkabohnen, grüner Pfeffer, Sternanise, Vanille, Schwarzer Tee, Getreide
Körper: Reife Bananen, Karamell, Salz, Zitrusfrüchte
Finish: medium Lang, ein bisschen süß, Bananen, Sternanise
Ich habe eine Mini-Flasche für c.a. 5€ gekauft.
Ich weiß nicht ob ich mir eine neue - große Flasche kaufen werde, aber dieses Getränk hat mir gut gefallen. Dieser Whisky ist nicht mein Lieblings, obwohl er ist doch sehr interessant und manche Whisky Genießer kann ihn wirklich LIEBEN.

Nosing: Dark Chocolate Sweet

Taste: Blackberry Pepper Heather

Finish: Alcohol

Comment: A bit of a bite. I expected the triple distilling to be a bit smoother. It’s a lighter dram. Nothing particularly stands out. While the American Oak was smooth with flavors of vanilla and spices, this is drier.
