In a nutshell: A light, textured and balanced Speyside single malt.
The lowdown: Described as an apéritif whisky this pleasant and light single malt opens sweet, fresh and balanced before drier citrus and very slightly smoky notes come throuh. Somewhat doughy and buttery on the palate it displays hints of lemon and pineapple with a slight hint of aniseed at the finish.
A relative newcomer, Auchroisk distillery was established in the 1970's in Banffshire, Speyside. Set up on a site specifically to draw water from a well judged to produced ideal water for the regions style of whisky, Auchroisk was originally branded as Singleton beacause some considered the name to difficult for non-locals to pronounce. However several changes later and the distillery has returned to its original title. It's a part of Diageo's extensive stable of distilleries.
