Member Ratings and Notes
Peppermint and citrus - light malts in background - Palate is more of the same.  Hot vanillas and some heavy oak spice that was not on the nose after a second or two. Finish is medium and not really anything but lingering oak resin. 
n: lemon

p: Lemon and chili paste.  Feels like it's going somewhere but just doesn't.  All too typical an Auchroisk.  Why SMWS picked this, I don't know.  Bah! 
N: Tobacco, leafy, tea.
P: Very tea-like, almost like green tea, crisp but flavorful.  Hint of vanilla.
F: Quite long with the tea notes continuing on.
I liked this immediately, its light and refreshing with an unusual profile.  
Very light  with not much going on.  Lots of pine wood and spice with a very short finish.  Tasted blind.
