Review: Auchroisk 30 Years Old Limited Edition 2012

Auchroisk 30 Year Old 212x300 Review: Auchroisk 30 Years Old Limited Edition 2012This final installment in the 2012 Classic Malts Selection whiskys is a fat old 30 year old from Speyside’s Auchroisk, aged in a mix of American and European oak.

Malty and woody on the nose, it’s interesting but restrained at first blush. The body brings out lots of sherry notes that you don’t really catch in the aroma, plus touches of banana, cedar, and incense notes. There’s plenty of wood here too, coming on heavier as you work through a glass. The finish keeps the lumber character rolling, but keep with it for long enough and you’ll find hints of cocoa powder to enjoy, too.

Solid dram, but perhaps showing the effects of a few too many years in barrel.

109.4 proof.
