Nose: After pouring a torrent of malt beer smell comes out of the glass. Accompanied by herb-sparkling grapefruit and yeast. A little breathing and the scents of hay, vanilla, pears and lychee. It is accompanied by a hint of hazelnut.
Mouth: The alcohol is unfortunately not so well involved, the alcohol easily slices uncomfortable on the tongue. The Auchroisk goes in a watery direction. The malt is grainy, with a dash of grapefruit and strong malt. Fruit is to be guessed at best, in the mouth oak tartness and maltiness set the tone.
Finish: rather short, spicy and tart, again some grapefruit.
Not as watery-boring as other Speysiders in the age group, but also no revelation. A Glenfiddich offers for me simply a better price-enjoyment ratio.
Very unsexy, very harsh, so definitely something own. However, I have used the whole 5cl.Sample to rauszukitzeln halfway something from the whisky. Overall, therefore, rather not my thing. A decent standard just, with just under 50 euros but 20 euros too expensive.
very light, a bit sweet, a bit oak, some smoke, powdered sugar, not very fruity. Overall, rather thin and light.
nice oily mouthfeel, honey, orange, some bitterness.
in fact neat orange peel, spicy, tart notes. Long.
The unbalanced nose is made up for on the palate. Fruit or citrus flavors do not come up against this pungent alcohol note, which is a pity. In the overall impression rather one of the worse from the Flora & Fauna series - 15.12.2017
