Tasted #32: Auchentoshan Valinch (#101drams)

Another #101drams whisky I was able to tick off the list at The Auld Alliance - the Valinch is Auchentoshan's cask-strength, non chill-filtered version of their Classic, weighing in at 57.5% ABV. I was curious to try this as I've generally found the Auchentoshan's to be very  light (as most Lowland whiskies are), so I wanted to see how a cask-strength version fared.

Not overly detailed notes for this one...but long story short - I won't be buying a bottle...

Auchentoshan Valinch (57.5% ABV, NAS, Lowland Scotland)

Nose: Freshly cut grass.

Palate: Earthy, "gritty", spicy. Fair hint of cinnamon.

Finish: Medium length, slightly grainy, cinammon still present until the end.

Rating (on my very non-scientific scale): 85/100. Not a huge fan.

- Martin.
