This expression of Auchroisk constitutes a good whiskey.
A pleasant smell combined with an interesting palate and a final thickness allows it to keep its promises.
Nose: dried fruit, cake crumbs burnt caramel and citrus.
Palate: autumn fruits, for me dried apples soaked in sherry, dry feeling, but luxury.
Finish: The finish is dominated by particularly spices as cloves and nutmeg, but as soon as there is a strong presence fade cream.
Overall: Perhaps the most interesting whiskey the 2016 Special Releases, this Auchroisk offers great fruity flavors with which you can relax all evening.
To combine with reserva or Cohiba Habanos piramides.
