Founded in 1974, Auchroisk is a newbie compared to some of its ancient Speyside counterparts. Though the distillery itself might be a recent addition to the landscape, Auchroisk Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from the naturally-pure waters of Dorries Well, a feature as old as the hills that gives this whisky its smooth and subtle character. Auchroisk (pron: orth-rusk) is one of Diageo’s ‘nutty-spicy’ styles of whisky.
The Auchroisk 10-year-old is light and creamy on the nose, with vanilla, butterscotch baked fruit flavours. There is also a hint of malt at the back of the palate. It has a pleasantly sweet and soft finish.
