  2. Whiskychap scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    My first Auchroisk and it`s a decent start. A good malt, but quite spicy for 43%. If the wood and sweetness was more refined we would have a very fine malt on our hands. Will check out other bottlings from the destillery.
    • Nose
      Quite soft on the nose i got some yellow fruits, almost hint of pineapple, cardboard (new wood in the mix?),Vanilla, mild spices
    • Taste
      Sweet lika vanilla with powdered sugar, some active wood followed by touch of something bitter/sour.
    • Finish
      More wood and pepper

  3. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A nice standard bottling of the past, in which the distillery character is revealed pretty well. A bit young, but quite drinkeable.
    • Nose
      Young, peppery, grassy, and fruity. It has this young and vibrant nose of pear, pepper, malt and grass. Later, getting mellower with also green apple, and honey. There is a tiny hint of wood smoke and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Rather thin, and obviously young, sligthly hot for a 43% ABV whisky. The pear is dominant, with a little metallic edge to it. Further, it's maltier, and yiestier than on the nose. Think of barley, and dough. Also some honey and eventually pepper.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. It leaves a rather rounded impression of the malt, with cereal, dough, honey. The fruit is still there, but less dominant.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Thick and creamy. Loads of sultana's. Some vanilla and actually quite oaky for a 10yo. There is also a slight hint of sulpher in the nose. But it's not really putting anything down.

    Taste:
    Sweet and sour arrival. Develops in some liquid sultana's. Nice and full sherried whisky. Again the sulpher notes are coming through, but it's not a bad case.
    There are also some biscuit and bread notes to be found.

    Body:
    Soft as silk, I assume this has been chill filtered.

    Finish:
    Medium-long. Again the sultana's and the bread. But it moves on to some oak. Vanilla and caramel are on the background and and the whole taste.

    Price:
    Don't pay over €50,- Everything more is speculation.

    Presentation:
    Nice and decent as the whole F&F range.
