Scotts Selection Auchroisk Tasting Notes

Posted: August 24, 2011 in Auchroisk, Scotch Whisky A-G

Scotts Selection Auchroisk 1989 (16 year old) 63.9%

Bourbon/ Dist: 1989 Btl: 2005/ Tasted: May 2007

On the nose it is soft and quiet light and oily with tangy citrus fruit, pear, banana, natural honey, bourbon oak, and a touch of grassiness and dunnage floors. Quiet Lowland-esque and quiet charming. On the palate it is pretty much as the nose.

Undiluted the alcohol somewhat dominates. However a drop of water brings out a beguiling sweetness, a juicy yummyness with a delicate touch of orange and a larger-esque malt note. It lengthens and brings out a touch of gin-like botanicals on the finish. A delightful summer malt.
