Mat
Mat,
Really spicy nose with vanilla and dried fruit. Peppery and spicy palate, the bourbon character really comes through and leads to some baking spices on the finish. Picked this up for £20 from Tesco so was pretty happy, but when scotch has this much bourbon character why not just buy a bourbon ...

Excellent choice for this price range. Very enjoyable
 
John
John,
Smooth, but more sour than I want from an oaky whiskey
 
Michael
Michael,
Nice vanilla notes and some cinnamon at the end. Nice taste that I had too much. But it was enjoyed.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Oaky, smooth, and floral with a spicy finish. very drinkable.
 
Ross
Ross,
Decent enough, light crisp with touches of vanilla and spice, no length but passable
 
Ben
Ben,
A sweet, un-peaty scotch from the ancestral Kennedy homeland.
 
Eric
Eric,
Worst whiskey I've had by a long shot. Like chewing on a board.
 
Ben
Ben,
Smooth with a strong kick after the initial sip. As you would expect from a bourbon, and as this is finished off in bourbon casks it's not a surprise. A woody after taste from the oak. But as a dry oak no smokeyness that I can detect.
 
AJ
AJ,
Fantastic single malt. I was really impressed. A great value and a must have.
 
James
James,
An ok whisky, not an overly complex flavour but relatively easy drinking.
 
Ben
Ben,
Smooth on the initial taste. Clean and palet clensing. But lacks depth. Leaves an odd earthy/oaky after taste. Almost like damp.
 
John
John,
It’s fresh and you can really taste the oak, great with a steak.
 
Marcin
Marcin,
Nice as an aperitif but lacks body and finish. Ok value for the price

Smooth, with a unique profile. I liked it but something about it just didn’t work for me in the long run.

Bryan
Bryan,
I enjoyed this dram. The zesty nose was pleasant. Nutty and spicy on the palate, with a hint of pepper and vanilla. The finish was was a pleasantly sweet surprise.

Leah,
I wanted to try a quintessential lowlands dram and this did not disappoint. It's a little too light for what I feel like drinking on a normal basis, but it won't go to waste.
 
Dustin

Nice easy drinking scotch. Not too Smokey, not too harsh.

I'm new to scotch and this one may take a few tries for me.

Jason
Jason,
A very fine way to relax and enjoy a fairly uniquely diverse wood and very nice but light hint of smoke on the quite lengthy finish. Have a dram and enjoy!

You don't ship to Massachusetts I'm at a loss.so I can't join.

Chris,
Long lasting flavor with medium warm finish. Smokey, old wood nose. Water adds malty nose and creamy, soft taste.

A pleasant vanilla scent with a smokey bite to the finish.

Jon,
This tasty Lowland scotch is a lighter style with lots of bourbon oak vanilla and spice...A very nice after dinner dram!

First taste is a bit weak. Aftertaste is very outspoken.

A delightful lowland whisky. It was a great dram after a long trip accross country. Not tremendously peaty, but floral, and had hints of coconut and flowers.
 
Dean
Dean,
This is my go to whiskey if I am needed a drink while I watch a movie or if I'm sitting on the back porch watch my kids play in the summer. It is very sooth and easy to drink. It is also the whiskey that I use for mixing drinks. That being said it has no real deep characteristics that make it worth sitting down and really enjoying the it for what it is. It lacks complexity. Overall not a bad scotch just not a great one either. If I could give it 6.5 I would.

Great for the price
 
Shana
Shana,
Auchentoshan, though somewhat satisfying for a single malt, lacks the subtle nuances and layering of flavor profiles in nose, palette, and finish that I yearn for in my single malts. The spice, burn, and finish are barely detectable. I imagine it to be a great "starter scotch" for those new to scotch in general due to its exceptionally mild honey-like sweetness. My personal preference is for anything with an intriguing complexity of character that cleverly reveals a complex flavor spiral from nose to finish (MacAllan, for example, exemplifies this for me). Overall, I found Auchentoshan soft, bland, and a smudge too oily.
 
Will
Will,
Sweet but not so much that it's doesn't warm your pallet. I found myself coming back to this as it is a smooth and easy friend to sit with after a long day.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I liked this but not as much as some others. Plus i can buy this a little cheaper from my local store for less than what it sells here.
 
Sean
Sean,
Not bad, but not great, some what smooth but nothing about the flavor stood out to me.
