"70cl / 46.0% - This 14 year old Auchentoshan single malt Scotch whisky was released for travel retail and bestowed the title 'Cooper's Reserve'. The whisky was drawn from a selection of Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks and North American Sherry casks, resulting in a flavour profile brimming with sugared almonds, dried fruit and creamy vanilla. "
Rich golden straw in colour; bright and natural. The initial aroma is faintly nutty (walnuts? later chopped almonds), with light tangerine notes behind and a hint of milk chocolate (tangerine-cream chocolates?)
The fresh, citric-fruit scents become more complex as the liquid breathes in the glass.
Drinks very well straight; a light texture and a sweet then crisp and citric taste, with grapefruit, and a light nuttiness in the aftertaste. A short, clean finish.
A drop of water enhances both the nuttiness and the fruitiness, and although the overall aroma is subtle, the hint of milk chocolate is still there.
