This is the oldest distillery release from Auchroisk and has been bottled at 54.7%abv from re-fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks. This is a limited edition of 2,976 bottles and was released in 2012.
Nose: Stewing dried fruits, then dates mashed with flour leading to burnt cake crumbs and citrus flavoured boiled sweets. There is also a big DIY flavour which could be described as saw dust, others might say varnish, either way it is awesome!
Palate: There is a big rush of autumnal fruits, for me dried apples macerated in sherry which forms part of a dry but luxurious mouth-feel.
Finish: The finish is dominated by spices particularly cloves and nutmeg but as soon as they fade there is a strong presence of powdered sherbet.
Overall: Perhaps the most drinkable whisky of the 2012 Special Releases, this Auchroisk offers big fruity flavours which you could sit with all evening.

This is a real good example of a underrated distillery. If this one tastes very good, we should guess which other treasures are waiting. Other distilleries who produce only for blends should someday release a bottling or another. We would very thankful for such bottlings like this one.

Very drinkable - but you can easily get a bottle of similar quality and taste profile for 1/5 of the price.

Seems I don't hear much about this distiller. I looked this particular spirit up in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible; I didn't find it and only found a few from the distiller. But I think this particular spirit is massively good, a stunningly good taste, smooth, complex, long-lasting. Don't know if I can splurge on a whole bottle (I bought the 3 cl sample) but---boy!---I am tempted!
