AUCHROISK

Distillery
  • Region: Speyside
  • Address: Mulben, Banffshire
  • Founded: 1974
Product Description

Auchriosk is a distillery many have yet to hear of.

It is a relative newbie when compared to some of its ancient Speyside counterparts.

First bottled in 1986 as a single malt, it was noted for its subtle, soft fruity qualities.

It’s those qualities we are looking for when selecting casks from Auchroisk.

Matured in American oak which helps us build flavours of candied fruits, oat biscuits and marmalade; an intriguing single malt.

There is a hint of pepper on the finish which is a pleasant surprise.

 

 

 

Did You Know?

The distillery Auchroisk has been build after the plans of "Westminster Design Associates" from 'International Distillers & Vintners Ltd.' in 1972.

The name 'Auchroisk' is gealic and means 'passage at the red water'.

The place for the buildings has been chosen because of the discovery of the well "Dorie's well". This well is quiet hidden in a crevice. Nowadays, a building protects the well.

Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Light vanilla caramel fudge, ginger biscuits, zesty baked pear.

Palate

Quite buttery, plenty of fresh green citrus on the palate. Apple skin, light acidity, candied ginger. With water added – plenty more fresh green herbal notes. Becomes quite nutty and biscuity with ground almonds and sweet oats.

Finish

Medium – short finish. Dry at first with a sweet nuttiness that makes way to fresh-cut grass and freshly baked bread.
