I have no previous experience with Auchentoshan, and little with Lowlanders generally, so I don’t know if I’m just disappointed with the Lowlander style overall.
The positives, are the powerful salty notes, the vanilla/condensed milk part of the flavour and the mouthfeel.
The negatives, are the strange note of, almost, acrylic paint in the nose (like white poster paint) and something I think is youthful spiritiness.
I am not too likely to get another bottle, but pleased to have tasted it.
