Identity Card

Crème brûlée on steroids 

Tasting notes

Colour: warm yellow

Nose: Crème brûlée and some brown sugar. Despite the high ABV, it has a very soft nose. Water reveals something flowery and orange zest.

Taste: Again sweetness of vanilla pudding with orange zest topping. Near the end, you'll find some caramelised almonds.

Finish: Nutty and creamy

Conclusion: A dram for people with a sweet tooth or those who are on a budget. A decent introduction to Auchentoshan and a very affordable cask strength.
