This was my very first Auchentoshan, and having heard a lot of good things about the 12yo I was naturally quite curious to taste it myself.

Considering the overall experience I liked the nose best. My first impression was of creme brulee, with distinct elements of toffee and sugar. Wonderful!

The palate displays the same, now almost tongue-coating sugariness. The whisky rolls across the tongue in a very smooth manner, almost like silk.

The finish is unexpectedly long and smooth with, again, a distinct touch of toffee.

This is a dram that one can enjoy at every occasion, be it as an aperitif or after dinner. I prefer it without water in order to fully savour the unmistakable creme brulee flavour.
