I love getting a surprise when I taste single malt, like getting to taste a whisky from a distillery I am unfamiliar with and find out that it is delicious. Case in point, this delightful little 15 year old from Auchroisk. The nose gave me an almost overwhelming bouquet of vanilla pudding, tropical flowers, and a hint of licorice. With that I was prepared for a big, bombastic scotch, instead I found a beautifully elegant whisky with long notes of green apple, young melon, and a subtle core of smoke running through it. There is very little heat on the finish, rather it is soft with just a little spice and a whole lot of yummy.
