    N: I simply love these fruity bourbon casks from the 1970’s, something Balblair of that decade excelled at, and Bunna with a good cask – as well as numerous others. Soft, fruity dunnage, a little coconut water [Norbert], even a soft coconut water Daiquiri. Minutes later the dunnage bourbon sugars [DBS!] come to light with melon citrus, sweet grapefruit,.. a mellow lightly sweetened fruit salad in the main. Far more dunnage with time, fresh not fusty.
    T: Appears rather light [given the low abv and a low opened bottle level], but actually takes a little water rather well. In fact water sharpens it up and brings an acute short attack of citrus. Somewhat dry-tannic and a little tight/austere but with readily aromatic notes of cumin seeds, melon and [oh its gone],……. the waxy/clay=putty mouthfeel heralds the next scene.
    F: Now it truly relaxes, moving into banana=coconut water whilst slowly adding a little grapefruit>zest, fresh nettles and various herbal=fruit [cold] teas as well as stewed black tea. Nice movement between the waxy candid taste=mouthfeel and the sour=sweet grapefruit alongside melon=cereal. At the death, woody old & dry vanilla and raspberry leaf.
    C: A thinkers dram for sure, but rewarding. All-sorts here.Scores a B-

    • Nose
      At first, classic of a sweet and spicy Speysider. Subtle. Cooked fruits (apple and peach), more and more creamy. Delicately malty, aromatic herbs.
    • Taste
      Intense and melted, but not soft! After the first sip, there is still a small lack of attack, probably due to the reduction. The spices are there, so present but never overwhelming.
    • Finish
      Long finish on spices and oak that gradually fade to leave a velvety sensation.

    Auchroisk 'Auk's Choir' 34y 1975/2009, 41.3%, Daily Dram, The Nectar, 97 bottles - Speyside - 88/100
    Speak from 'othrosk'. Subtle, soft nose on vanilla, fruit, light smoke, coffee and some wood (the years I guess). Njam njam. The taste is also very tasty. Soft, sweet (caramel, raisins - on rum!), Fruity (citrus), tasty. Nice aftertaste. Again a strong barrel selection of the boys from The Nectar. http://onversneden.com/2009/11/17/een-auchroisk-om-%E2%80%98u%E2%80%99-tegen-te-zeggen-of-iets-anders/

    A very pleasant nose, fruity and fragrant and a mouth that struggles to be at the height of the latter make this whisky a good venerable Speysider, simply.
    • Nose
      Soft and light. The whole is quite generous and floral, on the fruits with white flesh. Then come net relens apple but more on the sweet side, like love apple. It is a very fragrant and pleasant nose. I also notice a rather "special" note, like a smell of dried wood or figs. Aeration brings lemon.
    • Taste
      From the first sip, we feel that the angels have served well. The mouth has a little trouble following. Despite this, there are beautiful sweet spicy notes as well as peach. A mouth quite simple enough to the sweet texture, which is allowed to drink with pleasure.
    • Finish
      Long.
