SMWS 5.47 (Auchentoshan 14 yo 2000/2015)

SMWS 5.47 (Auchentoshan 14 yo 2000/2015)

2015, SMWS
Single malt - Lowlands
Pale silver
59.8% ABV

Nose: Lemon juice, pineapples, green apples, peaches, cooked rice, hints of leather. With water, green tea, more green apples, grass. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, watery, expands. 
Tasting:  Sour . Lemon juice, pineapples, green tea, toast, hints of cooked rice. With water, slightly sweeter, cooked rice, green apples, more green tea. 
Finish: Medium. Cooked rice, lemon juice, green tea, toast. 


Almost colourless, this whisky. Together with the cooked rice notes, this reminded me of nothing so much as a very good, very flavourful sake. It even has the slightly sour fermented flavour. With water though, the whisky came rushing back - tart, appley, herbal.


I like this.
