Nose is light, fruity, and nutty, with vanilla and caramel.  Palate is delicious.  Moderate spice rush with medium sweetness and grassyness; plus there's a refreshing aspect.  Pleasant heat.  Lately I've tried a few of these older cask-strength Auchentoshans that are darn tasty, and this is one of them.  This isn't especially complex, yet it's not simple either.  I like it a lot.  A-/B+

Nose:  Bag of trail mix.

 

Palate:  Good mouthfeel and kind of warming.  Initial taste is prunish and leads into a peppery but otherwise indisctict finish.

 

I don't like prunes, so that doesn't help.

 

Retaste 6/11/10

 

Nose: Overripe peaches.  This is a wierdo.  Nail polish?  Uniquely strange but not "good" strange.  B- only for entertainment factor.

B: Fruity, very slight ripeness (butyric).
P: Dry and light, a white wine profile, I guess you could say it's what you's expect from a lowland.
F: Gets even dryer, fades quick.
Yeah, not a big fan of this, its like fiery church wine.
