Nose
Chocolate mints. Dark chocolate. Wax paper. Straw.
Palate
Chocolatey. Crunchy. Root ginger. White pepper.
Finish
Hot. Alcoholic. Aggressive.
Comment
I would never have identified this as an Auchentoshan. Proves 'the Glasgow malt' has plenty of character, but this expression lacks subtlety.

Dave Broom

72
Nose
A strange nose: farmyards and mash gas to start, then malt extract, damp raffia and then a dominant raisin-like Marsala-type note.
Palate
Sweet and slightly burnt treacle toffee. Slightly unbalanced.
Finish
Dry and crisp. Char.
Comment
Decent but lacking true balance.
