  • Intro:

    Todays whiskey review comes to us in the form of an independently bottled Auchroisk, distilled in 2009 and matured for 10 years in a barrique that was then shaved, toasted and recharred. Interesting. This is bottled at cask strength, without coloring or filtering, by the SMWS. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Powerful and sweet - honey, butterscotch, nougat. Fresh croissant, buttery and sweet. Almost intoxicatingly sweet - not cloying, but extremely decadent.

  • Taste:

    Sweet again on the palate - notes of lemon curd, honey, cake batter, slivered almond, minerality and cream cheese frosting. Medium on the palate, with a hint of heat, but all is well behaved. Faint cocoa. Nutella. All dessert, all day. Fruits be damned.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, really lovely here. Oats, candied almond, pepper, bread and yeast. Lemon and cream cheese frosting. Lovely lovely lovely.

  • Overall:

    This my jam, in a way that typically is not my jam. I love how decadent and dessert forward this is, while still maintaining some complexity and falling short of being cloying. I want to drink this while I eat lemon danish and think about having a cigar or some prosciutto. Its really great.
