Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 55%
A 15-year-old Auchroisk 2006 bottled at the tail end of 2021 by Gordon & MacPhail for their Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength range. This 2006 Auchroisk is a UK Exclusive bottling.
Single cask Auchroisks like this G&M 15-year-old, bottled without colouring or chill filtration at natural cask strength (55%) from a refill bourbon barrel after a respectable ageing period, are the best way to get to know this perhaps rather under-appreciated distillery.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Ripe apple and poached pear aromas combine with tropical fruit. Delicate elderflower and lime zest give way to cocoa powder followed by soft herbal notes.
Palate: Smooth white chocolate intertwines with pineapple and sweet honey. Mango and coconut come to the fore alongside soft white pepper.
Finish: A medium-bodied finish with lingering, smooth banana and nectarine.
