This is the tasting note i wrote after a couple of times tasting it.
Nose: Overall light, sherry, slightly burnt oak, strong cocoa. quite complex.
Taste: Very strong and complex palate, lots of chocolate, very spicy, also fruity with citrus and raisins/dried fruit. It opens immediatly spicy, with a reasonebly hard mouthfeel but then goes over in a oily body with the fruit emerging.towards the finish it becomes slightly smoky with some vanille,anisseed (i dont know the translation of this, in dutch its anijs, im sure a dutch user will be happy to translate),dried fruit and strong oak. a "dark" taste overall.
finish: Very long, oily body turns into somewhat punchy smokiness, hints of sherry come back now and underlying some vanille,warm spyces and dried fruit. bitter-sweet at moments.
Personal opinion: 83% Very complex and not the usual Auchentoshan at all. The different wood types really complement eachother and each one comes back in the taste rather then neutralizing eachother. Overall not my kind of flavor, but something that shines on a tasting table.
I wrote this a year ago but i think its still true. occasionally i still drink this one when going out, its quite special. hope this helps.
ps, the price seems right for the quality to me. i personally find it better then Cragganmore 12, but you cant compare it with the mac or ardbeg in the same price, complete different taste. Knowing a litlle of your taste you probably best taste it in a bar first. This dram isnt one for regular drinking IMHO.
