.auchroisk - 10yo - flora and fauna

The original "singleton of..." brand discontinued a long time ago. This Flora and Fauna bottling of the 10yo Auchroisk is one of the few official bottlings Diageo has released.

43% abv, €45
single malt

Nose: sweet, caramel, toffee, fudge, herbs, laurel, salted butter
Palate: sweet, toffee, caramel, creamy fudge, salted butter, spicy, cloves, nutmeg, herbal, laurel, nuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts
Finish: sweet, toffee, semi-dry, a hint of marmalade
Mark: +++/++ 

Conclusion: Not particularly special, but fairly nice at the same time. Too sweet for my taste. I was about to call it a sweet blend-filler, but that would not give it the credit it deserves.
