Gavin D. Smith

75
Nose
A big initial note of tangerines, becoming closer to Madeira in time, with underlying vanilla.
Palate
Smooth texture; orange segments sprinkled with black pepper. Very lively spices fill the mouth.
Finish
Quite long and spicy, with bitter chocolate orange notes.
Comment
A very interesting and individualistic expression of Auchentoshan. Takes a drop of water well.

Joe Bates

72
Nose
Light, floral aromas of rose petal and barley sugar.
Palate
Much more muscular on the palate with initial notes of honey sweetness giving way to hot spicy flavours.
Finish
A spicy, dry finish which doesn't linger overly.
Comment
Seems a little raw and young on the palate, but a little water calms things down and opens up the flavours.
