Nose: Wood and leather at first, with floral sherry overtones; hazelnut and vanilla linger. Toffee comes out one the second breath.

Palate: Smooth and almost creamy entry, followed by a balanced wave of oak spices and sweetness. Velvety butterscotch/toffee and vanilla emerge, and then transition into floral hazelnut and orange zest.

Finish: A long sensation of buttery sweet nutmeg, with lingering floral notes.

I absolutely love this whiskey. It is certainly my favorite of the 3 Auchentoshans I have tried so far. It has the balance and complexity that I look for, and I find it hard to imagine asking for more from a lowland scotch. If I have to search for one complaint, there oak could be a tad strong, but then again this keeps it interesting. A lowland crowd-pleaser-- Perhaps it is even too good.
