View on SMWS

Nose: Fresh, crisp and clean. Clean cotton and crème patisserie join sugared lime segments, balled melon and a hearty glug of ginger ale. A bunch of slapped mint gives way split vanilla pod, and baked tart cases. Dilution expresses Rich Tea biscuits, and light floral touches of camomile.

Taste: The arrival has some zing, but not unwanted bite. That zing comes primarily from stem ginger – piquant and mingled with saffron, green apple slices, honeydew melon and pressed cotton sheets. Water offers a real syrupy fruit salad, combining the aforementioned white fruits with tangerines and spoons of peach yoghurt.

Finish: Medium, with fading core fruits and residual sweet/sour zing and pressed flower floralness.

The purity of this Auchorisk is really rather pleasant indeed. Bright and fresh flavours throughout and a dram which really opens up on the palate when diluted. Me likey.

Score: 85/100
