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.
Nose: Diced almond and crushed hazelnut, drizzled in toffee sauce. Touches of orange oil and fig rolls.
Palate: More fruit than the nose – plenty of raisins, figs and juicy orange. Well balanced with thick vanilla, nuts and a hint of oak.
Finish: Walnut, milk chocolate and that oak-y hint from the mid-palate last.
