Auchroisk 30 Year Old Cask Strength 2012 Release
70cl, 54.7% abv
Auchroisk 30 Year Old Cask Strength 2012 Release Single Malt Whisky is outstanding, one of the best Auchroisks ever bottled. A luscious aperitif for the start of the evening and equally good at the end. Matured in American and European oak refill casks, filled in 1982, a gloriously fresh and fruity whisky with real body and structure.
Nose: Stewed dried fruits, then dates blended with flour. This leads to burnt cake crumbs with a citrus edge.
Palate: A rush of autumnal fruits; dried apples macerated in Sherry. Then, a dry but luxurious mouth-feel forms.
Finish: The finish is dominated by spices particularly cloves and nutmeg. As soon as they fade, there is a strong presence of powdered sherbet.
