Whisky Reviews for The Singleton of Auchroisk 1978

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Erik1908 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Well, if this is like Cask 1988 describes here, whisky of the good old days, then let the good old days please return. This simple NAS Auchroisk is a very pleasant surprise.

    Got a 100ml from a bottle share with my friends here. One of them found this bottle on a forgotten shelf in a shop in Portugal at a fair "ancient" price. Something we all sometimes dream about.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Full body sherry nose, but not like the A'Bunadh. More subtle. Dusty for sure indeed.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Surprisingly full body for a NAS whisky at 43%. Not something you would quickly buy nowadays. No NAS at 43% for me; but as mentioned, this is different. There is indeed hints of citrus in here.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Again a surprisingly long finish.

      The Kinks once sang: where have all the good times gone. Let them please return quickly!

  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Old style whisky! They don’t make it like this anymore..
    Unity is the right word for this. Nose taste and finish are perfectly aligned together.
    I wouldn’t recommend adding water to it. It loses it’s tasteful character even with a few drops.
    • Nose
      Immediately that typical dusty/musty nose I recognize in a lot of old style malts. I just love that! There is mild citrus fruits, apricote and sawdust. There is also some kind of milky creaminess. When giving it a little time in the glass Arabic spices and vanilla will appear.
    • Taste
      Sweet and sour. On the palate it continues to feel and taste like older style malt. It is very refined. There is a decent amount of licorice involved and also mild citrus fruits and that hint of apricote. Friendly and oily mouthfeel. After a while it stars to get a little peppery, nice touch.
    • Finish
      Sweet and sour finish. Medium-long length. Strong and tastefull. There is a slight bitterness of dried wood and again Arabic spices.
