    A fresh, round herbal taste for this expression. Its young age is clear in its bold, powerful palate, anyway displaying an interesting balance between sweet flavours and a brilliant peppery liveliness.

    Solid! Mortlach-y in its weight and meaty notes. It’s actually predominantly sweet and toffee-y, but the savoury flavours add balance and helps set it apart from other similar bottlings. Otherwise, it seems like a much, much nicer Chivas 12. I like that it doesn’t come off as too young at all. The sort of mixed cask influence from the hogshead is really nice. Overall, quite tasty. I’ll be passing this one around at get-togethers, and probably using it as a palate-primer once I run out of Glen Garioch 12.

    Nose: A toffee monster!! Loads of the stuff. Dried apples, green grape, blackberries, a bit of cotton candy. Subtle oxidized sherry flavours: raisin challah dusted with cinnamon. Cream soda and ginger. Lightly floral. There’s a savouriness underneath – mustard and stewed beef. Earthy like wet clay.

    Palate: Medium-rich body. Off-sweet at first. Arrives with toffee, bitter orange, dried apricot, milk chocolate, and ginger. Then the savoury flavours kick in again: molasses, toasted sesame seeds, dried meat, and mild oak. Dried fruit in the middle, but without much sweetness. Black pepper and mineral notes. A very small amount of smoke, closer to barrel char really.

    Finish: Heavy and staying savoury. Toffee, honey, sesame, fig, and vanilla. Some lighter sweeter notes come through eventually: muscat grape, orange peel, pear, and icing sugar.

    A bit young and unpolished auchroisk. Certainly the palate could use more maturation.
    • Nose
      A grassy and fresh nose with hay and lemons. A good dose of sweetness with vanilla and cotton candy. Also young pineapple
    • Taste
      A malty core with caramel, close to spirit. Unripe not so sweet cherries, grapefruitjuice with ginger rasp and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Caramels, remains fruity and full with sugar.

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A young and nice Auchroisk.
    • Nose
      A beautiful fruity notes on the nose. strawberries, berries and cherries in jelly. After that more vanilla,caramel and cream, oakwood.
    • Taste
      Sticky red fruit on the palate. It will stay on your tongue. Liquid caramel.
    • Finish
      For me : middle long  aftertaste. All together  very pleasant and drinkable.
