Nose.. It’s fresh and fruity, oranges and lemon, toffee, worthers original sweets, and sugar almonds.

Palate.. Quite dry, vanilla, citrus, ( orange peel, lemon, ) and a little grape too.

Finish.. A dry medium finish, very enjoyable

auchentoshan seem to be doing a few sherry cask maturational/finishes, it’s such a delicate whisky it could soon be overpowered, as luck would have it they are pulling it off, I’m sure not everyone will agree with me, I really look forward to see where they go next.
