Auchentoshan Valinch #2 Bottling Note

This is the second release of the Auchentoshan Valinch. A cask-strength, no-age-statement, limited-release, Lowland whisky named after the device used to pull whisky from the cask. After the success of the previous bottling, this is likely to be a hit.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Crème brûlée, lemon meringue pie and a touch of that deliciously estery Auchentoshan new-make spirit on the nose, leading to creamy fresh fruits on the palate with cask-strength weight. The finish is lingering with hints of meringue and custard.

Auchentoshan Valinch 2012 - 2nd Release Reviews

Expectation Too High?

This potent, promising whisky is well integrated after watering down to the correct level. However, despite its well integrated oaky nature it lacks any form of character. Sadly a rather uneventful Whisky to my taste. I'll be hapilly finishing the bottle however, and imagining where additional maturation and perhaps an interesting finish will bring this whisky.

Meh.

Perhaps I was expecting too much. Nothing wrong and rather well integrated for a NAS, but very uneventful and even a bit bland when watered down to the right level. A shame really as the well integrated nature and high ABV of this whisky promises more.

Best Non-Age Since Black Label

Bought this on sale for $56 CAD after watching a review on YouTube by ralfystuff.

First of all, it may come off as non-sense: add 1 part of cold water for every 2 parts of Whisky. It is 57% cask strength.

I am serious. I have had >50 bottles of single malt that are under $75 USD. Add 1 part of cold water for 2 parts of whisky if you doesn't want your tongue burnt off.

Nose: rubbing alcohol (before water), lemon/orange peel (after water), cereal
Palate: Lemon meringue pie, orange peel, cereal
Finish: cereal, coconut flakes, whipping cream, maple, nuts, spices, black pepper.

It is a very good whisky for $56 if you can get over the non-age title.

Add 1 part of water for 2 parts of whisky and that add up to 1050 cl - that's a liter of whisky for $56 - even cheaper than JW Black Label 1.14L

Single malt that delivers

Impeccable well distilled middle Malt, substance, mixed flavour and lasting pallet leave this offering from auchentoshan a favourite. Delighted by the simplicity of the flavour, it's a winner folks. Enjoy.

much better than 2011!

Needs drop of water and then beats few more expensive ones. I like this stuff. Can enjoy this another bottle.

Best single malt in its price range

Perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness, strong enough to tolerate a micro ice cube which truly opens it up...lovely flavor of almond, citrus and caramel

27th October 2013

Like it

I enjoy the nose it is sweet but there are still many flavors I enjoy. Tough full strength for me so I add a little water.

The 2011 leaves for deadNasty

Nasty bitter taste blocks all depth

Almost as good as the first release... almost.

You can immediately tell on the nose that this is a young whisky, somewhat nervous. Less round than the previous release, I think. But still very sweet on vanilla and citrus. Porrigde, roasted barley and eucalyuptus. Fresh wood shavings. Leaving it to breath does wonders. Becomes fruitier. I get some sultanas. Light peppery touch. It is creamy and powerful. Good body. Picquant. Immediately fruity notes from oranges, peel included, and raisins appear. Clearly young, but that does not spoil the fun in this case.
The finish is pleasantly long, honeysweet and dies on coconut.
