Whisky Reviews for Auld Reekie 10-year-old DT
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.32 points
- Drink this straight, sit back and wait for the smoke to engulf you
Initial big smoke, then softer sweeter notes emerge with some light citric notes
Exceptionally smooth, coastal and sweet with obvious peat smoke most dominant
A long lasting lingering finish with the smoke continuing to develop long after the whisky is finished
- Undisclosed Caol Ila.
- Auld Reekie, das ist der Spitzname von Edinburgh und bedeutet "alte Verrauchte". So sollen die Einheimischen ihre Stadt genannt haben, als die Kamine noch mit ihrem Qual Smog und Nebel Über die Stadt legten.
Edinburgh has long been associated with smoke, whisky and royalty. It is reported that in 1777 there were no fewer than 400 illicit distilleries in Edinburgh. These easily went undetected in the thick smoke that filled Edinburgh. The smoke was such an issue in Edinburgh that the capital affectionately became known as "Auld Reekie". In more modern times Edinburgh has lost its reputation as being the smoky capital of Scotland with the island of Islay now more synonymous in whisky circles with smoke than Edinburgh.
