    Light dram, even if with no great personality.

    It starts promising sweet and gentle notes, with a nearly absent nose and some fruity (pear) hints at the beginning. Then the profile doesn’t grow much on the palate, resulting in some average vanilla and sweet almonds taste and ending up with bitter oaky notes and a bit of alcohol dryness, quite unexpected considering its 43 abv.

    Not bad at all, even easy drinkable but not much interesting and generally unoffensive.

    C: This bottle has been open for a number of years. Since I last tried a F&F Auchroisk [back in 2016], I don’t think much more of it now than I did then. In fact, it’s even rougher now than I remembered it, though its resemblance to the previous Ben Bracken and Whisky Broker Speyside Distillery offerings – in style – is noted.

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    malt, fruits on oranges, some wood
    the mouth is sweet, honey, oranges a little cooked, apples stewed, a little grassy, dry wood and a little cocoa, it's velvety, vanilla return to the end of the palate.
    final quite short, simple, but nice.

  6. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    floral, fruit (apple/pear) on the nose.
    Vanilla, sweet, firm, dry on the palate.
    Warm, dry short on the finish.
    It didn't gave the depth I was hoping for!

    For such a relative simple bottling; nothing fancy, a bit sanitized, it has taken me many tastings to get to know this whisky. It takes water very well, it is not easily drowned. Even a 1:1 ratio does not necesarily kill it (see below). And still just 43% abv. Many indies available. This is how the owner Diageo wants to show it, via their own indie outlet: F&F. Happy with that.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Grainy. Nuts. Light sweetness. Bread dough. Metallic. Savoury herbs dressed with sugar. Marzipan and honey.
      With water the nose is very different. All separately definable notes are integrated in 1 undefinable aroma (and we call it: whisky). No hint of alcohol in the nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The arrival is full and hot. Quickly shifting into a medium-long development of sweet and sour of juicy oranges, tangerines, some lemon.
      With water the heat in the arrival is gone. In fact, the arrival is gone. One big and long development of all sorts of juicy fresh citrus fruits and barley sugar. In the background there are the savoury dried herbs.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is dominated by a dryeness and bitterness of citrus white flesh. And later it becomes sweeter, leaving the aftertaste of barley sugar.

  8. PJH90 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    a zesty zing to it with a cashew-like nuttiness, not a bad Speyside; i felt adding a few drops of water helped take off what was a strong spirit rich hit to begin with

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Good, simple and pleasant, the summer is silent, especially good flavor, taste / finish is simpler, but also do not cause any complaints.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, the first nose - bright apple-floral hues, then the intensity noticeably decreases, the tree comes out to the fore, the mineral motifs - stone crumbs, raw masonry mortar; some vegetables - radish, daikon; lemon peel.
    • Taste
      Dense, oily, oak, sweet fruity-honey notes, vanilla, creamy-oily tones, light peppercorn.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, flower-honey, lollipops, light oiliness, apple peel, ginger candied fruits.

    Faint nose, with the young alcohol coming thru. Some oaky and spicy tunes in the taste. Surprisingly though, a better finish than I expected. All in all not too special
