Auchroisk 12 yo 1993/2006

Connoisseur's Choice, Gordon & Macphail

Single malt - Speyside

White wine

43% ABV

Nose: Raisins, brine, lemon zest, pears, magic marker, hints of camphor.

Bitter sweet. Pears, peanuts, raisins, flint, lemon zest, hints of plums, hints of camphor.
Pears, lemon zest, flint, walnut skins, camphor.


Fruity, yet bitter. The bitterness isn't just the full rounded tempered bitterness of lemon zest. There's a slightly unpleasant harsh chemical bitterness, that is also a little spicy. It runs all the way through the whisky, making it harder to drink. Not the most pleasant of drams.


Not bad.
