[0626]
£297.99
70cl/54.7%

A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt.

From Auchroisk, an active distillery on Speyside, rarely seen as a single malt.

A second limited release in this series.

The oldest Auchroisk ever released by the distillers.

Interesting to compare with the recent 20 year old, released in 2010.

From a mix of American & European Oak refill casks filled in 1982.

Just 2,976 bottles worldwide.

Tasting Note

Description - Outstanding, simply the best auchroisk ever bottled; a luscious apéritif for the start of the evening and equally good at its end. Gloriously fresh and fruity, with real body and structure; the initially clean and well-structured nose gives little hint of the complex, silky flavours of fruit and nut to follow.

Appearance - Rich amber gold. Good beading and texture

Nose - Light and precise, soon growing in depth and complexity. Top notes of fresh, crisp, juicy fruit (orange peel, banana, pear skin, even fruit chews) are backed by fragrant almond oil and rich malt. Later, leather, beeswax and a suggestion of smoke. Water increases the scented oil and brings up fruit salad with vanilla custard (red berries, tinned pears). Some late charred oak and smoke.

Body - Medium, oily. Richer with water.

Palate - Initially cool, smooth and sweet, with fresh acidity and a mouth-filling texture, then warming, with smoky charred fruit, as in a burnt fruit-cake. With a little water, less voluptuous though still cooling and coating; itís not so sweet now as the perfume grows and thereís an attractive dry nuttiness developing into dark chocolate, with hints of menthol and a grating of orange zest. Still smooth, fresh and well balanced, with a pleasing chewy texture.

Finish - Sustained and warming, with liquorice toffee and peppermint cordial, then bitter chocolate. Waxy too, with notes of pistachio and pecan nut. Unctuous to the last, with late beeswax and final notes of eucalyptus and clove.
