Auchroisk (1st Fill Port) 9Y – 59.9%

After almost 10 years on cask, this Auchroisk which has been stored on a 1st Fill Port Barrique (250L) cask, bottled at full cask strength of 59.9%. The cask was filled on December 21, 2010 and are the sister cask to our Auchroisk 1st Fill Oloroso, which we bottled in 2018.

The barrel itself has previously been used to store port wine, but this is the first time there is whisky on it. The Port cask has given a little sweetness to the whisky, and some nice color.

The whisky was originally supposed to have been bottled after it was 10 years old (January 2021). But we wanted to be sure that it came home before Brexit, so that it did not come any additional DUTIES on bottling.

Prior to bottling, shares in the barrel have been sold – cask share # 057.

...Finish: rather long, a little more peppery, but also with more red berries and all jams made thereof. Pretty good, way better than what I had expected. Things improve everywhere, that's fine. Charring?
