Whisky Reviews for Auchroisk 10-year-old
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.88 points
- 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.
Quite soft on the nose i got some yellow fruits, almost hint of pineapple, cardboard (new wood in the mix?),Vanilla, mild spices
Sweet lika vanilla with powdered sugar, some active wood followed by touch of something bitter/sour.
More wood and pepper
- A nice standard bottling of the past, in which the distillery character is revealed pretty well. A bit young, but quite drinkeable.
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.
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.
Short to medium. It leaves a rather rounded impression of the malt, with cereal, dough, honey. The fruit is still there, but less dominant.
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.
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.
Soft as silk, I assume this has been chill filtered.
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.
Don't pay over €50,- Everything more is speculation.
Nice and decent as the whole F&F range.
