Another excellent marker on the upward trajectory of Auchie.
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Light and clean. Touch of flannel, green peppercorn, pistachio nut (rather than ice cream) and rose. Water brings out grape seed and unripe pineapple.
Palate: Very sweet and hot. Becomes nuttier than the nose suggests with a gentle grip. Needs the water to show the fineness of the spirit.
Finish: A balancing light dustiness.
Comment: Another excellent marker on the upward trajectory of Auchie.
Nose: Sweet and plenty of cream. Initially delicate then it opens out, hints of all spice and ginger. There is citrus as well. Crème brûlée and some fresh barley.
Palate: At first there is the alcohol bite, with a touch of pepper, then it mellows into this soft character with a little lemon and orange.
Finish: Vanilla and a malt edge, quite long.
Comment: Possibly the perfect summer drink and easy to mess around with: long with ice and ginger is fun.
