    Good but boring

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every drop of this. But I also would enjoy a cup of brown sugar and molasses with a smooth alcohol kick, which is what this is. For the price I expect a little something, well, "unexpected". I'm going back to Yamazaki 18.

    Brown Sugar & Spring Flowers - a solid dram

    The nose was filled with brown sugar and spring flowers. The taste was vanilla and brown sugar, smooth and easy. The finish leaned towards a warm honey and went down velvety. A good drink.

    Pefect, my new staple

    The Aberlour 18 was my previous staple among non-smokey, not-overly-sherried Scotches. This is a big step up. (I've never tried the Toshan 18). In fact I think it's perhaps a perfect whisky. Very molasses, brown-sugary. There are *no* off flavors--no unnecessary malt, no tobacco, no cardboard. And just enough alcohol burn to accentuate the flavors. The only thing that could perhaps make it better is higher bottling strength. I note some sites call this a "special release"; I hope it stays around for a long time.

    Drank too fast

    The profile on this is all hot fudge sundae. Vanilla, chocolate, nuts, honey, caramel, maple. Light on alcohol. Very good if you like that kind of thing. Comparable to the much cheaper Bushmills 21, but a bit lighter and without the tobacco.

    I rarely get $150+ bottles. Not sure this is worth it, but it *is* fairly unique per things I've tried. I'm a bit sad it'll be a while before I get to try this again.

    Surprised this is a sherry cask. Don't taste too much sherry at all.

    Chocolatey, no alcohol burn at all. So, sure, good. $200 good? Given I like a little alcohol burn and there are others out there just as chocolatey for cheaper, probably not. Still, complexity, for a lowland, not to be discounted.

    Maple Syrup

    On the nose, this Toshan offers a fresh mix of green apples, vanilla, gooseberries, apricots, tobacco leaves, barley and sugared almonds. Some dried grasses and honey. No, make that maple syrup. Mint! A light hint of oak. This is good. Very good, in fact.
    On the palate, it is all After Eight (you know, the mint-filled chocolates), accompanied by creamy honey, nuts and sugared orange peel. Again a nice supporting role for the oak. I daresay this is complex.
    The finish is long, on citrus, dried grass ditto apricots. Mildly drying oak.
    A great Auchentoshan, that feels quite mature. This would go very well with a stew of boar, I kid you not. Wonderful winter dram!
