My tasting notes

  • Appearance Bright white wine gold (6/20), slow, medium tears and straight legs.
  • Nose Vanilla, honey & apples, biscuity, shortbread, malty, touch grassy hay, floral honeysuckle, quite reserved.
  • Taste Medium-full bodied, creamy almost milky, vanilla, milkshake, white chocolate, cereals, porridge, honey |& oat flapjack, later green apples, white pear and white grapes, really thick and chewy on the palate.
  • Finish Long, oak wood, honey sweet and some white pepper and white chocolate.
  • Overall An accomplished Auchroisk from a refill bourbon cask. Vanilla and cereals lead with touch of fruit and plenty of white chocolate, delicious!

Score 84/100
